Join Florida College Access Network (Florida CAN) on Tuesday, March 29th at 2:00 pm for a webinar introducing College Ready Florida, a series of statewide initiatives designed to support high school seniors as they prepare to continue their educations after high school.
Over the past year, in partnership with schools, districts and community organizations, Florida CAN has piloted three new programs that aim to boost college-going rates for high school seniors:
Apply Yourself Florida is part of the American College Application Campaign, a national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential, by helping high school seniors navigate the complex college admissions process and ensuring that they apply to at least one postsecondary institution (2-year or 4-year college, certificate program, or vocational school).
Florida FAFSA Challenge strives to boost the number of Florida seniors completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by encouraging schools to set and reach bold but attainable FAFSA completion goals.
Florida College Decision Day recognizes and celebrates high school seniors for their postsecondary plans and encourages all students to prepare early for college. Held on or around April 26th, it coincides with the date when seniors typically must inform colleges of their plans to enroll.
Learn more about these programs and how to implement them in your school or community!
