Osceola School District Invites Students And Parents To Be "All-In" For Historically Black Colleges and Universities

The Osceola School District is collaborating with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Broward County Public Schools, and the School District of Palm Beach County on the implementation of a college access event highlighting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). “All-In on HBCUs” is a two-week initiative with participation from 32 HBCUs from across the country. This initiative will connect students and families from Osceola County and across Florida with information about the outstanding postsecondary opportunities available at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. 

"All-In on HBCUs" will kick-off on Tuesday, January 19, from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. with an exciting and interactive virtual program celebrating HBCUs that can be viewed at https://tinyurl.com/allinkickoff

Representatives from participating institutions will be available for one-hour information sessions each day from January 19 – January 28 as part of "All-In on HBCUs."   All sessions are virtual and free, and they are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about HBCUs. Links to register for all sessions can be found at www.palmbeachschools.org/HBCU.

Infinite Scholars will be held on January 21, which will also give families in the Osceola School District the opportunity to sit in on information sessions focused on choosing the appropriate post-secondary pathway and to meet with college advisors at www.infinitescholars.org/.

“Our focus is to continue to expand the knowledge of all the post-secondary opportunities that exist and how to get there," said Anthony Cook, Coordinator of College and Career Counseling for the Osceola School District.  For more information, follow Mr. Cook on Instagram at @friendlyneighborhoodccc.
