Application to the program is initiated with National A Better Chance. More information can be found here: Application Information. The application process begins a year prior to enrolling, when the student is in the 8th grade.
A Better Chance of Fayetteville-Manlius is part of the Community Schools Program, which offers both the independence a scholar would find at a boarding school and a family-style residence. FM ABC begins interviewing scholars in the spring of each year, as openings occur. More information about FM ABC can be found in our CSP brochure.
