SCF Collegiate School Earns Another ‘A’ Grade
(Bradenton, Fla., July 26, 2013) — In its third year, State College of Florida Collegiate School (SCFCS) earned a third consecutive 'A' grade from the Florida Department of Education (DOE) based on students' performance on the 2013 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT).
For the past three years, SCFCS has substantially outperformed both the state and Manatee County schools on the FCAT.
"Being recognized as an 'A' school for the third year in a row is a point of pride for our teachers and students," said State College of Florida President Carol F. Probstfeld. "We celebrate their success and look forward to awarding SCF degrees to the first SCFCS graduating class at Spring 2014 commencement."
Kelly Monod, SCFCS head of school, praised students and teachers for their continued progress.
"Our students' success on the FCAT is a testament to our teachers' dedication and hard work in ensuring that our students are doing their best every day," Monod said.
As an innovative, technology-oriented school, SCFCS is a tuition-free public charter school located at SCF Bradenton. Three hundred and thirty students attended SCFCS in its third year of 2012-13.
SCFCS opened in Fall 2010 with sixth and seventh grades and will expand to include grades 6-12 in the 2013-14 school year. Students in 11th grade enroll in the Accelerated College Program to receive guidance and support from SCFCS while taking college courses with an opportunity to earn simultaneously a high school diploma and an associate's degree. A partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) provides a scholarship program for SCFCS graduates to continue to FGCU for a baccalaureate degree.
Applications are now being accepted for the 10th and 11th grade classes starting this fall. Applications and information are available by calling 941-752-5494 or visiting scf.edu/SCFCS. Maps and directions are online at scf.edu/maps.
