Program Description

The core mission of Pre-Collegiate Programs is to provide services that educate and improve the lives of underrepresented students academically, socially, and financially. This will be accomplished by creating an environment that is nurturing, supportive, provides leadership, fosters development and community outreach, and promotes academic excellence through supplemental instruction, advisement, and mentoring.

The primary objective of the College Reach-Out Program (CROP) is to increase the number of low-income educationally disadvantaged students in grades 6 through 12 who, upon high school graduation, are admitted to and successfully complete postsecondary education. Participants should be students who otherwise would be unlikely to seek admission to a community college, state college, state university, or independent postsecondary institution without special support and recruitment efforts.

Students serviced are currently residing in South Miami Area. To be eligible for CROP, students are to be low-income and first generation students. Services and programs available to CROP students are Summer Middle School programs, Spring-Break College Tour, School visits by Pre-College Staff, College readiness workshops, online and in person tutoring services and many more.
