“FCE helped me discover that with effort come options. I am grateful that FCE pushed me to truly achieve my full potential. I know that without the encouragement and support I received from FCE staff, I would not have applied to some of the more selective colleges and I wouldn’t now be going to the college of my dreams!”
Whitney Stewart

Like you, perhaps, Whitney started high school with the determination to make her family proud, but without a clear idea of what it would it take to achieve her goal of going to college.  FCE is here to help you know yourself, make the most of your strengths, and understand that high expectations and hard work are the keys to your future.

FCE’s wonderful staff and volunteers have helped me stay focused on my goal of becoming a software engineer. They’ve provided one-on-one tutoring in academic subjects and help with my college applications. At FCE I get to spend time with students like me who are motivated to graduate from college."
