Foundation Studies

Foundations are important. Just as buildings need a strong foundation, students need a solid foundation of knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and habits in order to realize success. Jackson College is committed to assisting learners in identifying and achieving their educational goals. To further that mission, the Foundation Studies Department supports developmental students through the instruction, design, and delivery of courses across all disciplines. Through student-focused instruction, we foster the development of critical and creative thinking skills and study practices that will sustain students in college and beyond.
