I feel that the program helped to solidify my dream of going to college even though I was questioning whether I should or not. I can see that there are options for me now and that I can apply myself to get through my classes even when there are pressures and self-doubt.
With EdReady . . . you take the test, and it’s okay if you don’t know it all. It’s okay if your skills aren’t strong. Let’s make them better. It kind of fosters that sort of mindset where there’s a lot of things that we’re not strong in, but if you have the determination to make yourself stronger, it fosters that desire and it creates the environment to do as such.
EdReady is not a one-and-done platform. EdReady is an ongoing resource that helps students grow in math and English. It is honestly such a gift. I used EdReady when I was nervous and scared to take pre-calculus. I enjoy this program because I did not feel like a failure during the entire experience.
Being a part of the EdReady summer bridge program has been monumental in my success so far. It has allowed me to feel confident as I go into a different chapter in my life.
