“The Fresh X Summer Program helped me to earn better scores on my TSI placement test and make new friends along the way. I am grateful for all the teachers who helped me get into college level courses instead of going through the remedial ones. By attending this program, I got a great head start to my college career!”

“I have served as English instructor for Fresh X since 2004! I have derived tremendous pleasure from seeing students excel on the Accuplacer and qualify for admission into freshman composition without the need for additional developmental coursework. Through extensive practice in grammatical usage and essay development, students gain the skills needed to succeed not only in English but in numerous other college courses. I have been excited about seeing students feel more confident about their potential in writing, mathematics, reading and college success!”
