SFCC is always looking for ways to recognize student academic achievement and passion. In 2021, SFCC partnered with PLTW in order to offer students in the PLTW Biomedical pathway articulated college course credit. Students interested in going into an allied health pathway can get ahead by applying to SFCC and earn valuable science credits that will go toward an AA degree and open the student’s schedule so they can take upper level courses faster.
The PLTW Biomedical Program contains courses that focus on the application of science as it pertains to the healthcare field. Students who take these courses receive a solid foundation in scientific knowledge and important soft skills. SFCC believes that this type of program helps prepare students for college introductory level science courses.
