Got College?
The Education Foundation has partnered with Valencia College and the School District of Osceola County on the Got College? initiative to increase the college-going rate for Osceola County graduating high school seniors.  This partnership has increased that rate in Osceola County by more than 20% since 2010!
 
This initiative approached the hurdles with an actionable plan: dispatching college student ambassadors to local public schools; bringing all Osceola School District students to Valencia’s Osceola Campus for tours sponsored by the Celebration Foundation; and requesting that the University of Central Florida offer more majors at its regional campus at Valencia Osceola.
