Pre-College Programs


Set your sights on a star-studded future by being a participant in FAME (Format for Affecting My Enrollment).

As Florida State College at Jacksonville's longest running pre-college program, FAME strives to prepare students for a success entry into postsecondary life. FAME is designed to give students in grades 9 through 12 activities. These activities range from college preparation checks with guidance counselors for 10th graders to college entrance exam testing for seniors.

The FAME program also provides students and parents an opportunity to meet successful Jacksonville citizens who serve as inspiring examples. Like the College Reach-Out Program (CROP) students, FAME students receive help in setting career goals and discovering their academic potential.
