Florida SouthWestern Collegiate High School-Lee Campus is a public charter high school with an open enrollment policy. All FSWC-Lee students follow an honors level and STEM based curriculum, providing students with the opportunity to graduate with an associate degree and high school diploma simultaneously.
Our curriculum and student management philosophies follow the nationally recognized pre-collegiate/collegiate model where students take honors level classes during their freshmen 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 independent learners. This course of study affords participants the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an associate of arts degree in just four years of study. With this tremendous opportunity comes an expectation to be highly motivated and focused on academic pursuits beginning the very first day of the very first year of school. Potential students should be prepared to have academics as their primary school priority and are expected to exhibit a high degree of personal integrity and social maturity during their time at FSWC-Lee.
In order to participate, all potential students will be offered the process outlined below:
FSWC–Lee will host the following face-to-face Open Houses as well as small group tours during the day. The online enrollment lottery process will open on Thursday, November 16, 2017 and end at midnight on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.

Our lottery process is not based on merit, as we run an open enrollment campus. Lottery registrations can be accomplished online once the process opens on Thursday, November 16, 2017 and closes on Tuesday, March 28, 2018. The school webpage has a large red button to link you to the lottery registration.
Florida statute provides for sibling and employee preference, and all applicants (including those claiming either of these statuses) must participate in and indicate their intent during the lottery process.
The actual lottery will be open to the public on April 12, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in Building U, Room 102. This process will rank order applicants as we prepare to accept 118 incoming freshmen, and fill available sophomore seats. Seats are also available for fully qualified Dual Enrollment junior and seniors.
In years past, freshmen and sophomore seats that open during the year were filled with lottery participants based on their ranking number. This midyear transition has historically proved to be difficult for students and, effective with the 2017-2018 school year, we will not enroll freshmen or sophomore students after the first month of school.
Fully qualified Dual Enrollment students will be added based on the preference established by their lottery numbers at the beginning of each semester for their junior year and/or during the fall semester of their senior year.
