College of the Florida Keys

Proudly serves the higher education, workforce, and continuing education needs of Monroe County and beyond. The College offers various associate degrees and certificates that prepare students to transfer to a university, enter or advance in the workforce, or fulfill personal goals.

The southernmost institution of the “Great 28” in the Florida College System, CFK has experienced tremendous growth in campus facilities and educational programming since its establishment in 1965. In 1963, the Florida Legislature authorized the establishment of the Junior College District of Monroe County to be supported primarily by state funds. The first classes were held at the former Douglass High School in the fall of 1965. In 1968, the College name was changed to Florida Keys Junior College upon the opening of the main campus on Stock Island.
