South Florida Community College takes a learner-centered approach to provide the highest quality academic programs and services. SFCC students may participate in a variety of college clubs and organizations, cultural events, games, intercollegiate athletics, and other programs. Many of these activities are supported by student activity fees. Students are encouraged to participate in the College's decision-making processes through active involvement in various College committees.
SFCC was established in 1965 by the Florida Legislature to serve the educational needs of Highlands and Hardee counties. The College began operation in August 1966 in temporary facilities provided at no cost to the State by public-spirited citizens of the City of Avon Park. The facilities were renovated, air conditioned, and partly furnished through the voluntary contributions of many interested individuals and organizations in both Highlands and Hardee counties and by the municipalities of Avon Park, Bowling Green, Lake Placid, and Sebring.
Today, SFCC serves over 19,000 residents of Highlands, Hardee, and DeSoto counties. Students graduating with associate in arts degrees can concentrate in more than 60 fields of study. Students can earn an associate in science, an associate in applied sciences, or college credit or occupational certificates. In 1992, SFCC became one of the first community colleges in Florida to offer bachelor's degree programs through partnerships with public and private universities. It now offers 13 bachelor's degree programs and three master's degree programs through eight colleges and universities. Residents can now receive advising and classroom instruction without having to drive long distances or move away from the tri-county area
