College Reach Out Program is a State of Florida grant-funded program designed to prepare middle and high school students to successfully pursue and complete a post-secondary education. The program targets future first-generation college students currently in grades 6 through 12. The program also motivates students to develop basic learning skills, strengthen parent and student understanding of the benefits of postsecondary education, and foster personal and career development through supplemental instruction.

East Lee currently has about 25 students in the organization and it is growing daily.

Meetings are every Wednesday in room 1231.

College Reach-Out Program Mission

The College Reach-Out Program’s mission is to motivate and prepare educationally disadvantaged, low-income, first-generation students in grades 6 through 12 to pursue and successfully complete a postsecondary education.

College Reach-Out Program Vision

The vision of the College Reach Out Program is to enroll students in postsecondary institutions with the confidence that they will possess the determination to pursue a degree and become positive influences in the community as the result of the guidance and encouragement they received from the program.    

Talent Search

The Talent Search Program (formerly the Scholars Club) strives to identify and assist 6th-12th grade students from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. Talent Search staff will work with eligible students as they plan and prepare for postsecondary education through a variety of activities at the school site and on the FGCU campus.
