SCF Collegiate School Earns Accolades from Governor and FDOE
(Bradenton, Fla., January 9, 2014) — State College of Florida (SCF) Collegiate School has been recognized by the Florida Department of Education as a high-performing charter school after earning its third consecutive ‘A’ grade based on students’ Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores.
Kelly Monod, head of school, also received a handwritten congratulatory note from Gov. Rick Scott recognizing SCFCS students’ high performance in math and science.
As an innovative, technology-oriented school, SCFCS is a tuition-free public charter school with grades 6-12 located at SCF Bradenton. 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.
The first class will graduate in Spring 2014.
