CLEWISTON — Clewiston High School’s newest Collegiate Academy students visited Florida SouthWestern (FSW) State College’s Hendry-Glades campus Wednesday, Oct. 23, for a tour of the campus. Students toured the Academic Success Center, where tutors provide students support in math and writing throughout the week. They also toured the anatomy and physiology and biology lab classrooms, which were both recently upgraded with thousands of dollars’ worth of models to assist students in their learning. Students also toured their state-of-the-art computer lab and library, both of which are located in the newest building on campus. It was a great learning experience for all those involved.

The latest round of PERT testing to qualify students for the Collegiate Academy was just completed, and 19 additional Clewiston High School students qualified! The sophomore class (Class of 2022) now has 40 students who are either fully qualified or who are only one qualifying test score away from joining the academy next year. Classes are capped at 50 students, though, so anyone interested in the Collegiate Academy should work hard to prepare for the next round of testing to ensure their place in next year’s incoming Collegiate Academy class.
