The State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) has entered a partnership with the Sarasota County School District that will allow them to offer an accelerated dual enrollment program, which is similar to the program at the State College of Florida’s Collegiate School.

The program will be for students at Venice and North Port high schools.

Juniors from Venice and North Port will be allowed to enroll in up to 16 credit hours a semester over the course of four semesters. The primary goal of the program is to have students graduate from high school while also earning an associate degree.

The prerequisites for participation in the program are a GPA of 3.3 or higher, promotion to the 11th grade and achievement scores deemed college-ready on entrance exams that include the ACT, SAT and PERT. A letter of recommendation from a high school counselor is also required.

Students chosen to participate in the program will receive guidance from their high school counselors and SCF counselors. Accepted students will be enrolled at SCF Venice full-time while continuing enrollment in their high school for sports and extracurricular activities.
