College Of Central Florida

Central Florida Junior College was established in 1957 when community leaders and citizens envisioned an educational resource that would help Marion, Citrus and Levy counties to grow and prosper. With foresight and determination those community leaders planted the seed that has become the educational hub of the tri-county area.

The college also offered classes in Citrus County for many years before partnering with the Citrus County School Board to establish an educational complex in Lecanto in 1984. To accommodate a growing need, a free-standing campus opened in 1996 on 88 acres in Lecanto. Ten acres have been added to the Citrus Campus and the Citrus Learning and Conference Center opened in fall 2009.

Today the Citrus Campus is its second-largest campus, offering a variety of academic programs and support services. College of Central Florida provides access to high quality, high value baccalaureate degrees, associate degrees, certificates and diplomas, and promotes the economic, social and cultural development of the community.
