Quality.  Lake-Sumter State College has national and international standing in the education profession through our partnership with The Dr. William Glasser International Institute.  LSSC is the epicenter for Dr. Glasser’s Quality Schools movement in higher education.

Through the Alliance of Learning Organizations for Future Teachers (ALOFT), LSSC conducts joint research with flagship universities and Research I institutions nationally, keeping our program on the cutting edge of current trends and demands of the educational field.  This means upon graduation, you will be one of the best prepared new teachers anywhere.

The Florida Institute for Teacher Excellence (FLITE) will prepare you with classroom management strategies, communication skills, and conflict resolution capabilities many first-year teachers lack.  FLITE also connects you to STEM and educational resources you can use in your classroom right away.

Personalization.  LSSC’s professor-to-student ratio is 20-to-1, meaning to us you aren’t a number… You’re YOU! 

Value.  Compare the cost of a Lake-Sumter bachelors degree to one of a major state or private university and you will quickly see there is no comparison.  The lower cost means working fewer hours to put yourself through school, and/or paying off student loan debt years, possibly decades earlier.
