Faculty Fact Sheet

The Achieving the Promise Academy (ATPA) is an academic program created by Montgomery College to support students while they complete their degree. Each student who enrolls into the program works closely with an academic success coach. All coaches are faculty members who have a professional and educational background in the student’s area of academic interest. Coaches partner with students, their professors, and other key stakeholders (on and off campus) to help students achieve their academic goals. VIEW THIS PDF FOR MORE INFORMATION.


"No athlete or musician is embarrassed or reluctant to have a coach; on the contrary, they consider it mandatory. The same should be true of academics. No student should be hesitant to accept from an expert ATPA Student Success Coach the encouragement and coaching to propel them toward academic success. It can give you the 'winning edge." - Richard Scott, ATPA Program Coordinator
