Programs at The Continuum exceeding expectations

     The Continuum’s instructional programs are exceeding all expectations for Spring 2022,   

Dual credit course enrollments are booming at Lake City’s Continuum this semester.

Nearly 500 students from Pee Dee area high schools have enrolled in one or more of the 21 dual credit courses this spring, according to Francis Marion’s Director of Dual Enrollment Anna Todd. This is the largest number of students to participate since the program’s inception in fall of 2019.

      “These high participation rates are a direct reflection of the quality educational experience students get in the program,” Todd said. “Dual enrollment exposes students to courses that are typically not offered in high school. It gives them the opportunity to have more challenging courses and gain college and high school credit at the same time. Having this take place somewhere like The Continuum makes it an experience students cannot get anywhere else.”

 The Continuum is a $25 million enterprise borne of a partnership among The Darla Moore Foundation, Francis Marion University and Florence-Darlington Technical College.The facility is equipped with seven high-tech classrooms, three computer labs, three distance learning classrooms, large prep rooms for biology and chemistry labs, four workforce development classrooms, health science spaces, and a large lecture hall that can also accommodate special events. No other region in South Carolina has an educational partnership quite like this, offering such a comprehensive array of curricular opportunities and career training choices. Thirteen high schools across the Pee Dee region are currently participating in these programs.

“Francis Marion University is proud of our strong partnership with the Darla Moore Foundation and Florence-Darlington Technical College,” said Dr. Fred Carter, president of FMU.
