College Mission Statement

Basic skills are those foundation skills in reading, writing, mathematics, learning skills, study skills, and English as a Second Language which are necessary for students to succeed in college-level work.

Teaching basic skills requires us to work together across departments, disciplines and services. Mission College is committed to providing students with the cognitive and meta-cognitive skills to achieve competency in the basic skills.
