COLLEGE REACH-OUT PROGRAM
The College Reach-Out Program (CROP) at SJR State focuses on middle and junior high school students who, due to economic and academic barriers, may not consider themselves to be “college bound.” The program urges students at an early age to begin to understand the importance of participating in a rigorous course of study in middle and high school as well as attendance at college upon graduation. CROP students participate in a variety of activities that allow them to imagine a future that includes college and provides them with the necessary skills for a successful middle school, high school, and college experience.
SJR State’s CROP currently services four schools in Putnam, Clay, and St. Johns counties. The partnership between students, families, and the education system is the program’s foundation.
How much does it cost?
There is NO CHARGE to qualified students and their families to participate in the College Reach-Out Program.
