First Coast Technical College
First Coast Technical College’s mission is to provide career, technical and adult education to meet the changing needs of students, businesses and the regional workforce. As the needs of the students and community changed, so did the school. In 2007, First Coast Technical Institute officially became First Coast Technical College (FCTC) and operated as a charter school under the authority of Florida Statutes 1002.33 and 1002.34, with the St. Johns County School District as the Charter Sponsor, with a governing board of directors made up of members of St. Johns, Clay and Putnam Counties.
That chapter of the school’s history ended on June 30, 2016 when the charter was terminated and the FCTC Board closed the school. On July 1, 2016, the St. Johns County School District began operation of FCTC as a St. Johns County School which in many ways, returned the school to the original vision of a highly successful District operated vocational center. Classes are only available on campus. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
