Florida College Access Network (FCAN) is at the heart of a movement to ensure all Floridians have the opportunity to achieve an education beyond high school and prosper in our dynamic economy.

By partnering with leaders, educators and communities throughout Florida—especially through community alliances called local college access networks (LCANs)—we strive to achieve the State of Florida’s SAIL to 60 goal: for at least 60% of Florida adults to hold degrees and workforce-relevant credentials by 2030.

The Alachua County Education Compact is mobilizing the community around education to better prepare students for higher education and sustainable careers. This collaborative initiative–which includes leaders in education, business, philanthropy, workforce development, government, parents, and families– aims to improve systemic outcomes in education by aligning the efforts of our education partners to prepare students to seize career opportunities in emerging industries.
