Every program, every service, and every decision is made with you in mind. We want to help you achieve your greatest potential and improve your life for many years to come.

More than 6,000 students choose to take classes at Florida Gateway College each year.

FGC Stories - Kenny Brown

FGC was a huge draw for me because I was able to pursue both of my passions – basketball and my goal of becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant. I heard great things about the school’s PTA Program, and instantly knew it would be a perfect fit.

We strive to offer useful services and a fun atmosphere. Between classes, you can find recreation in The Hall, work out in our fitness center, grab a bite to eat at the Gateway Grill, and participate in a student club. We host picnics, festivals, intramural sports, faculty/staff vs. student games, and much more!
