How Are Students Selected for JFK?
JFK was designed to reach students who were considered the “Middle Student”. These students may not be recognized as the ‘top’ of their class, however, they possess the skill and ability to succeed in college level classes... they may simply need a little push. Determining ‘readiness’ is not an exact science, however, having over 10 years of connecting students with the community college has shown that students who attend school, do not have disciplinary issues, are able to maintain at least “C’s” in A-G high school classes, and express a desire to take ownership in their education - those are the students who tend to be successful in the middle college setting.
