Core Values


At FCE, four core values define the ways we empower our students to reach their full potential.

  • High Expectations: We encourage our students to move beyond standard grade-level performance and pursue college preparatory and advanced courses to ensure they are prepared to attend our nation’s competitive colleges.
  • Family and Community Engagement: We believe that meaningful family and community engagement is key to student success
  • Measurable Results: We measure our success by the number of students who graduate from college. Intermediate measures include the number of college prep classes taken, GPA, and percentage of college admissions.
  • College Graduation: At FCE, college acceptance is only a first step; a college degree is critical to our students’ economic and social mobility.

Since its founding in 1995, Foundation for a College Education has been a leader in the college access community, innovating and pioneering new programs and new approaches to the growing challenges of preparing low-income students of color to enroll in and succeed in college.
