Participation in FCE starts in 9th grade, but middle school students and their families are encouraged to begin thinking about programs like FCE before freshman year. You can apply in the spring of 8th grade. Space permitting, we admit a few students in their sophomore year as well.

If you are a student or parent interested in learning more about how to participate in FCE, or if you are a teacher or counselor with a promising student, please contact us to discuss our admissions criteria and participation standards. We look forward to hearing from you!

FCE is a place of opportunity, where I get help with my academic subjects, learn about the college application process, and develop leadership skills. At FCE, I belong to a community where everyone is committed to going to college."
