College Reach-Out Program
The College Reach-Out Program (CROP) was established in 1983 by the Florida Department of Education. CROP provides a pathway of support from middle school to high school and into college for students who are the first generation of their family to go beyond high school. Connecting students and parents with caring, knowledgeable adults and effective pre-college programming (mentoring, academic counseling, tutoring, motivational workshops, after-school and summer programs) creates a CROP community that ensures students a track for academic success. Information on college admission requirements, financial aid and other prequisites for the college-bound are also provided.
Chipola's College Reach-Out Program began in 1991 and now serves over 200 students grades (6-12). Specifically, CROP serves students in Calhoun, Jackson and Washington counties. Through a joint venture, CROP (College Reach-Out Program) and ETS (Educational Talent Search) provide additional services to area middle and high school students. Through this partnership, students who meet eligibility requirements are provided the resources needed to grow socially, emotionally, and academically, and are exposed to cultural enrichment throughout the year.
Chipola's College Reach-Out Program is part of the Panhandle II CROP Pre-Collegiate Consortium made up of Gulf Coast Community College, Florida A&M University, Tallahassee Community College and Chipola College. Each campus involved in the Consortium has students who are involved in a wide variety of academic, educational and counseling activities designed to supplement their education and better prepare them for a postsecondary education.
