Program Logistics

Students will have access to the subjects required based on their pre-testing results via tnAchieves CONNECT. Students must have an activated tnAchieves CONNECT profile to gain access to the Online Bridge Program modules. The program modules will be available from June 7 - June 30, 2021, meaning students must complete all assigned modules during this timeframe.

tnAchieves Coach

Online Bridge Program participants will be expected to meet with an assigned tnAchieves coach at least once per week during the 3.5-week program. Coaches will check on progress, answer questions and ensure students are prepared to start college in the fall.
