Florida Keys Community College's College Reach-Out Program.
Because of its Reach-Out Program, Florida Keys Community College (FKCC) has been successful in recruiting black high school students to achieve its highest proportion of racial parity in first-time-in-college enrollments (i.e., 5.2%). Through its Eighth Grade Visitation Program, High School Recruitment Program, and other components, the Reach-Out Program has attempted to: (1) identify students who do not realize the value of postsecondary education; (2) counsel/advise students and parents through the Financial Aid Awareness Seminar, College Visitation Day, and Eighth Grade Visitation Program, as well as the FKCC slide show; (3) provide supplemental instruction in study skills through the publication of "Your Quick Guide to Success in College"; and (4) offer instruction on the relationship between learning skills and economic/social mobility in mini-lectures presented during the Visitation Program and College Visitation Day. This report on the Reach-Out Program includes a summary of 1984-85 activities; descriptions of each aspect of the program; and the program proposal narrative. (LAL)
