Getting a high-quality education and enjoying a vibrant island setting are not mutually exclusive endeavors. At The College of the Florida Keys, it’s not just about sunsets and fishing. Our academic programs are exciting, relevant to today’s job market, and led by passionate faculty with support of our industry partners.  

The classes-- and the College—are small, so learning is personal. Discussions flow. Questions are answered. Inspiration sparks. Many niche programs go beyond the classroom by providing students with hands-on practice in the field. “Learning by doing” builds skills and resumes with invaluable (and fun) experience that translates to solid careers. 

We invite you to learn more about your opportunities at CFK. Please don't hesitate to contact CFK's Office of Recruitment at or 305-809-3207 with any questions you may have about becoming a CFK student.
