Why is CROP important?
CROP identifies and assists students from economically and academically disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in college. The program provides supplemental academic support, financial and academic counseling to its participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to the post-secondary institution of their choice.
The program employs certified high school and middle school teachers to provide instruction to students on one of HCC’s campuses during the Summer Academic Enrichment Program and the Saturday Enrichment Program during the school year.
