Catch Up Math
St. Croix Prep students have access to a math review website, www.catchupmath.com. The program finds each student's learning gaps through a pre-test. This pre-test determines the lessons and problems for the students to complete. When the student has completed the assigned work, a test determines the future concepts to be mastered.
