“I felt I could never go on to college because I would never graduate. I couldn’t do math. From the moment I started [College Prep Math at College of Western Idaho] I was totally hooked. This program teaches how math correlates and how it all goes together. It has definitely made me more confident." —Joy Heideman—College Preparation
