August 21–September 1, 2017
Framingham Campus

The Achieve In Math (AIM) Summer Program is a 2 week long refresher workshop that helps students prepare for the Math Accuplacer Test and have the opportunity to place into a higher level math course — ultimately saving money on their education.

– AIM Summer Program is free and lunch is provided.

– Students who successfully complete the program will receive a $150 gift card.

  • This program is for non-STEM students interested in enhancing basic math skills.
  • Students learn strategies and review topics based on the problem areas identified by previous Accuplacer test scores.
  • Students learn about helpful resources and make connections to students, faculty, and staff that will improve their college experience.

Register today! Only 30 seats available! We welcome MassBay students in degree and certificate programs, as well as students taking courses at Massbay. For more information, please call Anu Meacham, Assistant Director, Math and Science Center, , 781-239-2634.
