Florida SouthWestern Collegiate High School Charlotte Campus is a public charter high school with an open enrollment policy. FSWC-Charlotte is located on the Punta Gorda campus of Florida SouthWestern State College and is part of Charlotte County Public Schools. Our curriculum and student learning philosophies follow a nationally recognized pre-collegiate/collegiate model where students take honors level classes during their freshman and sophomore years in a traditional high school facility. For eligible students, the junior and senior years consist of dual enrollment classes taken on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State College where students are offered all the challenges and rewards of being college students. This course of study affords participants with the opportunity to earn a High School Diploma and an Associate's Degree simultaneously in just four years of study. With this tremendous opportunity comes an expectation that students be highly motivated and focused on academic pursuits beginning the very first day of high school.
