SCF Collegiate School Students Excel on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test

(Bradenton, Fla., June 5, 2012) — In its second year of existence, State College of Florida Collegiate School (SCFCS) performed at a high level on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT).

“My congratulations and appreciation go to Head of School Kelly Monod and the excellent SCF Collegiate School team. These results show that, by all measurable standards, our Collegiate School has succeeded in instilling a going to college mentality for first-generation families who otherwise might not have considered college for their children,” Hafner said.   

SCFCS substantially outperformed both the state and Manatee County schools with a higher percentage of students scoring a passing grade of 3 or above on the 2012 FCAT.

Pleased with the results of the 2012 FCAT, Kelly Monod said, “I want to give special recognition to teachers and students for working hard to meet our rigorous standards and increased expectations. They took the test seriously and gave their best efforts.”

As an innovative, technology-oriented school, SCFCS is a tuition-free public charter school that allows students to explore their potential, discover the importance of higher education and receive personalized coaching in a close-knit school setting.

Students have the opportunity to earn simultaneously a high school diploma and an associate’s degree. A partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University provides a scholarship program for SCFCS students to continue to FGCU for a baccalaureate degree after graduating from SCFCS.

SCFCS opened in Fall 2010 with sixth and seventh grades and expanded to include eighth grade in the 2011-12 school year. In the upcoming 2012-13 school year SCFCS will include grades six through nine and the first year of the Accelerated College Program with students in grade 11. Openings remain for the 11th grade class starting this Fall. Applications and information are available by calling 941-752-5494 or visiting scf.edu/SCFCS.
