FOSTERING HIGHER EDUCATION FOR ALL

 

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide underprivileged and lower socioeconomic students of every race, gender, and religion, the proper information, standards, opportunities, and instruction to enter college. We are also committed to holding negligent and unaccredited private schools accountable for not providing this critical demographic the appropriate opportunity that every Central Florida student deserves.

 

About Us

Our program aims to help underprivileged and lower socioeconomic students of all backgrounds and races get into college. Our priority has shifted to serving under-served private High-School students during this COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic progresses, our students are experiencing a myriad of challenges, with the most significant health, economic, and social impacts being borne by communities under-resourced before this crisis. With our students already facing insurmountable odds, we will provide laptops, internet access, and family tutorials on how to connect and navigate through digital learning, virtual college applications, and virtual college campus visits. If we do not get these students the proper technology and help, seniors will take a gap year, and never attend college. 

During these unprecedented times, Fostering Higher Education for All is honored to support High School Students in Central Florida, help close the digital learning gap and provide vital services to support the well-being of private school students during these uncertain times. We have immediately started to support students in our underserved communities during the transition to distance learning and build on existing resources for students impacted by school closures. We are working on partnering with T-mobile to provide connectivity to private school students across three counties, Osceola, Orange, and Polk. Because they are not part of the Public or Charter school system, they have to rely on their poorly run schools who do not have the capabilities to provide the necessary resources. Our goal is to provide mobile internet devices, including hotspots, laptops, and tablets to students who lack home internet access. We also have zoom meetings will all of our families to go over the new virtual college options and how to navigate through the new digital learning age. Our program provides free SAT/ACT testing preparation, free breakfast, and lunch during tutoring sessions, scientific calculators, up to five free college books their first semester of college, gas cards, paid college application costs, ACT/SAT waivers, and laptops during the COVID-19 pandemic.
