How to improve my scores and be better prepared!!!

Pioneer Summer Virtual Learning Academy - For student that need to improve their Math scores or have never had Algebra II and would like to be better prepared for the Fall College Algebra Course.  I would recommend taking Algebra II.

A great way to save time and money!  Questions? Contact the Student Success Center 419-755-4764.  I would recommend taking the Beginning Algebra Math Bootcamp.
