But not sure where to begin?


Any student between grades 8 and 11 is eligible to apply to the College Partnership Program (CPP). This program is designed to support students interested in exploring, applying to, and enrolling in college. In accordance with FCPS' goal to eliminate gaps in opportunity, access, and achievement for all students, CPP focuses on academic advising, college visits, family engagement, and preparation beyond high school. CPP was created to systematically mitigate the impact of barriers to access and opportunity, and support students who are from populations that are historically underrepresented on college campuses (including those who are the first in their family to attend college in the U.S., economically disadvantaged, students with disabilities, and English language learners) but all students are encouraged to apply.

Applications Due March 15th at 11:59 PM 

  • Applications will be submitted online  (Apply here: - Students must be signed in to their account)
  • Completed Application includes: 
    • Section 1- Student Information
    • Section 2- Parent Information 
    • Section 3- Parent permission to release information 
    • Section 4- Student Writing Sample
