Pre-Collegiate Programs

TCC offers several pre-collegiate programs geared to prepare young students for success in college and beyond. Our programs give local youth an opportunity to cultivate a passion for learning, and pave the way for a better life through higher education. Discover our pre-collegiate program offerings:

Take Stock in Children/CROP

Take Stock in Children was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education. We offer our students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life. Our comprehensive services start in middle school, continue through high school and include their transition into college.
