Blind High School
First Coast Technical College (FCTC)
FSDB collaborates with First Coast Technical College (FCTC) to provide our students with a head start toward a career. Interested students work toward certifications and skill mastery within the various technical programs during the school day. Students have the opportunity to choose from programs in: Horticulture, Culinary Arts, Auto Repair, Cosmetology, and Child Care. Students are given hands on opportunities to learn and practice skills in these areas and take corresponding certifications as applicable to each program.
Our partnership with FCTC allows our students the opportunity to Do More, Be More, and Achieve More.
