Applications for the North Central Florida Take Stock in Children Program are released through each county’s middle schools. A selection committee made of faculty, staff, mentors and donors meet to determine the students for the program who participate throughout high school.

Students selected for TSIC agree to:

  • Stay off drugs
  • Stay crime free
  • Maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average
  • Maintain good citizenship both in and out of school
  • Meet with an assigned mentor each week at school
  • Attend and participate in TSIC events, as required

Each student also meets with program staff to receive additional support, such as:

  • College success coaching
  • College readiness workshops
  • Timely intervention

Students who honor the Take Stock in Children commitment receive a two-year tuition scholarship to FGC upon high school graduation.
