“We are excited about the launch of the Math Saturday tutoring effort in Franklin,” said Vice President of Academic and Student Development Dr. Tara Atkins Brady. “Students with their parents and guardians will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so no pre-registration is required. Games and information will be available for the parents and students.” We just launched this initiative in Suffolk in spring and in Franklin in the summer, and the sessions were well-attended.”
 
Dr. Atkins-Brady added, “PDCCC’s Math Academy is a new grant-funded, multi-strategy initiative to promote mathematics literacy. We are implementing the program in partnership with schools and community organizations in the College’s service region.” Math Academy is sponsored by PDCCC with the generous support of the Suffolk Foundation and the Community Action Coalition of Virginia.
 
The elements of Math Academy include “Math Academy Saturdays” tutoring, a symposia with K-12 educators, which was held in August, and the provision of mathematics resources to the community through the College’s new Library Learning Commons.
