SCF Collegiate School Earns Fourth Consecutive “A” Grade

(Bradenton, Fla., December 18, 2014) — In its fourth year, State College of Florida Collegiate School (SCFCS) has earned a fourth consecutive “A” grade from the Florida Department of Education (DOE).

“This accomplishment is a testament to SCFCS’ quality education and its strong foundation for our students as they continue their educational journey," said State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) President Dr. Carol F. Probstfeld.  "We are proud of administrators, teachers and students for their part in SCFCS earning an ‘A’ grade for four years in a row."

SCFCS Head of School Kelly Monod was pleased with SCFCS teachers’ hard work and dedication to students who performed above state and Manatee County School District averages on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.

"We are excited to celebrate another ‘A’ grade, and we thank our wonderful teachers and students for their passion for learning and growing," Monod said.

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 academic coaching in a close-knit school setting.

SCFCS opened in Fall 2010 with sixth and seven grades and has expanded to include sixth through 12th grades. Students attend college classes at SCF Bradenton beginning in 11th grade with an opportunity to earn simultaneously a high school diploma from SCFCS and an associate degree from SCF.

SCFCS graduated its first class in Spring 2014 and nearly all (55 out of 57) are attending a college or university. More than half were accepted to Florida Gulf Coast University, which provides a scholarship program for SCFCS graduates who pursue a bachelor’s degree.

SCFCS will hold information sessions for parents interested in enrolling their children entering sixth through 11th grades in Fall 2015. Sessions are set for 6 p.m. Jan. 15, 21 and 27 at SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. W., SCF Collegiate School, Building 19. A session in Spanish will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 13.
