Academic and professional success requires a strong foundation in key skill areas. MASP is a basic academic skills curriculum that improves knowledge in reading comprehension, communication, writing and mathematics. Per MCO 1560.25, the target population for MASP is Marines with General Technical (GT) ASVAB scores of 99 and below. It also serves as an excellent college-PREP program. (Family members may participate on a space-available basis.) As such, it is best described as an intense “academic boot camp.” Any interested Marine should call the Education Center at 257-2158 or visit us in Bldg 220. See this PDF for additional information and enrollment form.
