Florissant Valley's Gateway to College Program Seeks to Recruit Students

June 18, 2009

Florissant Valley's Gateway to College program is currently recruiting students for the beginning the fall 2009 semester.

To begin the process, students must first attend an information session with their parent or guardian and complete an evaluation and interview. In order to attend the information session, students must complete an application, which will be sent upon request. Information sessions will be held on the Florissant Valley campus at 3400 Pershall Road on the following dates:

  • 3 p.m., Monday, June 29
  • 8 a.m., Monday, July 13
  • 3 p.m., Monday, July 13
  • 3 p.m., Monday, July 28

Gateway to College is designed for young adults ages 16 to 20 who did not complete high school and were last enrolled in the Ferguson-Florissant school district. The program enables them to earn a high school diploma while simultaneously earning college credit toward an associate degree or certificate. The program is free. Books and student maintenance fees are covered.

Along with funding from the partner school district, the Gateway to College grant provides support staff and services for up to 350 students. Students must meet specific criteria to enter the program and will be dually enrolled at STLCC-Florissant Valley until they complete their high school diploma or reach the age of 21.

The Gateway to College National Network is part of the Early College High School Initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, The Ford Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Jobs for the Future, an action/research and policy organization that promotes innovation in education and workforce development, serves as the initiative’s coordinating intermediary.
