Take Stock In Children

 

“Our Take Stock in Children program offers the promise of a college tuition plan to our students" 

 

We are currently seeking applicants for a new class of Take Stock In Children scholars.  Financially eligible students and/their parents may pick up an application at the school's guidance office or may download the application below. Completed applications should be turned in to the guidance office for an opportunity to be a part of this amazing program.  Applications are due to the school advocate listed on the application by March 1, 2017

 

The Take Stock in Children program also provides mentors, staff support, and guidance to ensure that the students—many of whom are the first in their families to attend college—are prepared for the rigors of college coursework. Take Stock in Children scholars are required to maintain good grades, exhibit exemplary behavior, and remain drug-and crime-free. In addition to the college tuition scholarship, students also receive book scholarships from the Gulf Coast State College Foundation and the Florida State University-Panama City Foundation.

 

A number of private individuals, businesses, and organizations work to provide local funds. Funds raised in the community are matched dollar for dollar by the state through the Florida Prepaid Tuition Foundation.  The Bay Education Foundation also raises funds at its annual Golf FORE Education tournament, Strides for Scholars 5k and Arts Alive event. The most important component of Take Stock is mentoring. Every student is matched with an adult mentor who will serve as a friend to the student throughout the school year. 

 

The Foundation welcomes mentor volunteers at any time. You can learn more about the mentor program by visiting our page on this site and apply online. Interested community members may also contact Janet Kessler at
