Cole Partners with NMSI

We inspire our students to their highest level of learning.

With generous support from the Department of Defense Education Agency (DoDEA), this year Robert G. Cole High School has begun participation in the National Math and Science Initiative’s College Readiness Program—a comprehensive three-year program designed to boost academic achievement in college-level math, science and English coursework. The National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming math and science education in today’s classrooms with proven, effective programs that can be replicated nationwide. This helps military connected children transfer their success from one school to the next.


Cole joins a network of more than 1,000 schools nationwide that have adopted the innovative program, which is dramatically increasing the number of students succeeding in rigorous Advanced Placement® coursework in math, science and English and transforming schools into centers of college readiness. The program’s elements of success include extensive teacher training, extra time on task for students during Saturday study sessions, exam fees, classroom equipment and supplies, and awards for achievement.

Student Study Session Information

  1. Each subject is provided three student study sessions. Each study session covers different topics based on the information students learn throughout the school year, so it is important to attend each one.
  2. These sessions are review opportunities for students to internalize learned information and practice applying a single-subject mindset for a four hour period - the same period of time students receive to take the AP exam at the end of the school year. The learning and networking that takes place is invaluable for student success and content mastery.
  3. Students are required to register for sessions through Eventbrite 30-days before the event date. This can be done in class with the AP teacher.
  4. Transportation for sessions is provided by Cole. Permission slips must be signed by parents to specify travel plans.
  5. Students are provided refreshments and opportunities for prize giveaways during the event.


The following are event notices for the first of each subject's sessions. A full schedule follows.
