Information for Educators and Administrators

FES is a national, nonprofit organization that partners with public schools in high-need communities to raise student aspirations and performance.

Working with students, administrators, teachers, parents, community members, local businesses, and colleges, FES assists schools to develop principles and practices that enable them to cultivate and sustain a culture of achievement. The Century Program (TCP) is one of several programs FES coordinates. When a school activates a TCP program, each of the 100 participating students will have a mentor and be encouraged to participate in a wide variety of activities including, for example: early awareness workshops, student-to-student mentoring, admissions and financial aid informational programs, college visits, college application assistance, and job shadowing experience.

Recently, Connecticut joined a growing number of states that support this program. School leaders who are interested in learning more about this program or who are interested in participating in The Century Program can visit the web site.
