The Vision

As a member of the local community, Fredonia is committed to helping identify and communicate transformative pathways to post-secondary educational opportunities. Connecting the community to resources that are important to future career success allows us to build a college-going culture together within Chautauqua County and the surrounding regions.

"College-going culture refers to the environment, attitudes, and practices in schools and communities that encourage students and their families to obtain the information, tools, and perspectives to enhance access to and success in post-secondary education." - University of California, College Tools for Schools

Studies show that post-secondary education in linked to greater lifetime earnings, better health outcomes, and more engaged community members, just to name a few of the positive impacts (How College Shapes Lives: Understanding the Issues, October 2013).

Individuals, families, and communities all benefit from the ripple-effect of a more educated and skilled society. We can work together to improve our region and our communities by continuing students’ strong educational foundations beyond high school.

Discover a pathway to your future by exploring different career options, academic majors, and options for education beyond high school.
