The College Success Program is comprised of five individual programs that provide college readiness, access and success services to students who are traditionally underrepresented on college campuses. Many, but not all, College Success Program students are the first in their family to attend college and do not have the financial means to attend without significant support.
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is responsible for managing three of the five programs exclusively: AVID, the College Partnership Program, and the Elementary School Project. The remaining two programs are managed collaboratively with post secondary institutions. The Early Identification Program provides services to FCPS students through a partnership with George Mason University and the Pathway to the Baccalaureate Program through efforts with Northern Virginia Community College.
These programs prepare students for the academic rigor of college course work, help students with the college application process, and provide enrichment experiences to build the resilience that is so often needed to successfully graduate.
Now entering its third year, the College Success Program honors the philosophies and traditions of each individual program. In addition, the College Success Program finds practical ways for the individual programs to work together and learn from each other, so that each program continually improves, and costs and logistics are streamlined.
