Khan Academy @ The College Crusade

Khan Academy is an online math instruction program that is geared toward students who want to achieve higher scores in math in the classroom. This cutting edge-technology program provides easy accessibility to Crusaders, who can log in from any computer in order to practice their math skills.

The College Crusade is committed to helping families get their children involved in using Khan Academy so they can benefit from extra support in math. We have a customized login for Khan Academy that allows Crusaders to use the program and get Crusade credit for what they learn.
