The purpose of Florida Christian College is to conduct a course of study to educate men and women for Christian service, to provide a program of instruction on the college level, to grant appropriate degrees, and to serve as a resource to the churches, especially in Florida.
FCC is supported by the contributions of various interested individuals and congregations of the Churches of Christ and Christian Churches--mostly within the state of Florida. Florida Christian College enjoys a strong relationship with its supporting churches.
At the start of each semester, new and transfer students are led in a period of orientation, the purpose of which is to ease the transition to Florida Christian College by acquainting students with the mission, people, systems, and setting of Florida Christian College.
FCC students are divided into class groups, (freshman, sophomore, etc.) each under the guidance of two faculty and staff members who serves as the Class Sponsor Team. These class groups provide a basis for social activities and spiritual growth. Your participation in them is very important and is strongly encouraged.
One College-wide social function is planned by each class annually. The class groups also serve as a basis for the Student Council - four class members are chosen each year to represent their interests to the Council.
Most classes also plan numerous dining or recreational get-togethers each year and develop some of the most meaningful relationships established during a student's years at FCC.
