Take Stock in College
Take Stock in Children recently launched a new program, Take Stock in College, designed to improve the college completion rate of its more than 6,000 students attending a Florida college or university.
Currently, the college completion rate of TSIC students totals 67 percent, which is five times higher than that of peers nationally facing similar challenges and barriers to post-secondary success.
The goal of the program is to increase that number to 95 percent by bridging the gap between high school and career with targeted personnel and improved on-campus resources and supports. College attainment is the key to ensuring more students make it out of poverty and through Take Stock in College, the organization is proactively putting our resources to work to increase our college completion rate to mirror our high school success rates.
