Pre-College Programs

CARE seeks to prepare potentially first-generation college students for admission and enrollment into higher education. Our pre-collegiate programs are designed to develop students' skills in core academic areas while preparing them for college life. Through a variety of academic support workshops, supplemental educational experiences, direct student support, engagement activities, and campus and community-based enrichment services, CARE seeks to ensure students are ready for the rigors of a college education, as well as develop the skills necessary to adjust to college life. Our pre-collegiate programs serve Gadsden, Leon, and Duval County residents.
