What defines a community?
It’s not your zip code or your dress code. Real community is defined by a code of ethics that values the potential in every individual and provides support and opportunities for growth.
Since 1966, Santa Fe College has been committed to adding value to the lives of our students and enriching our community. As part of the Florida College System, we are charged with serving the economic development needs of Alachua and Bradford counties, but our community has also grown to include graduates from every county in Florida, every state in the nation, and over 100 countries. In 2015, we were recognized nationally by the Aspen Institute as the #1 community college in the country.
With the help of visionary donors, the Santa Fe College Foundation has awarded more than $13 million in scholarships to our students. Each of the six educational centers, built throughout Alachua and Bradford counties, came to life because generous families and individuals believed it was critical that students in every corner of our service district should have easier access to education. That commitment defines our community.
