Family Christian Center School encourages students to take advantage of the Dual Enrollment Program at Lake-Sumter State College in Clermont. Students who have completed their sophomore year of high school are eligible to dual enroll the summer after their sophomore year. Lake-Sumter bills private schools at a discounted rate for classes taken by their students.
Students will be eligible to take one three-hour (also three-credit) course each fall, spring and summer semester. FCCS will pay the cost of one three-hour course (per year) for students who successfully complete the course attempted; all other courses taken will be paid by the parent at the discounted rate. Please note that on occasion, books are required for courses and these will be purchased by the parent.
Students must meet all academic requirements of the College and are also responsible for contacting Lake-Sumter State College to make an appointment with an advisor to begin the dual enrollment process. Lake-Sumter South Lake Campus – 1250 N. Hancock Road – Clermont, FL 34711 – (352) 243-5722
FCCS is proud to offer our High School Juniors and Seniors with two different vocational tracks; the National Early Credentials Track and the IT Vocation Program Track via Lake Sumter State College or Early Institute. These programs have an additional cost and are a wonderful opportunity to give your student a head start to their future. Please contact our admissions office for more information.
