Florida College Decison Day
At FCAN, we believe all students’ academic achievements should be celebrated.
That’s why we launched Florida College Decision Day, an adaptation of former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher initiative. Both initiatives are inspired by the NCAA’s National Signing Day, which celebrates students who have received athletic scholarships.
Sites have a lot of flexibility when hosting their events. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Recognize all students for their post-secondary plans, whether they are planning on attending 4-year college, 2-year college, technical school, or the military.
- If possible, hold recognition in front of the entire student body to encourage younger students to start thinking about college.
- Invite members from the community as guest speakers to congratulate students.
- Add to the celebration by serving food, booking a DJ, or raffling off college-related prizes.
