Welcome to our Lake-Sumter State College Accreditation website! Our motto is “Where Futures Soar” because we understand how important a good education is in enabling students to enjoy a high quality of life and be competitive in the global economy. Our dedicated and talented faculty and staff offer students small classes with top quality instruction and excellent student and academic support services.
The LSSC story is rich with testimonials and student success stories reinforced by demonstrated performance results. Our success is attributable to the people, the systems and process, and the approaches implemented by the faculty and staff. To sustain and improve performance we continuously look to innovate and experiment with new approaches, discover leading practices, celebrate strengths and opportunities, and always learn as we strive to advance student success.
We strive to provide an affordable, quality education in an environment that is supportive, student-centered, and where each of us is challenged to do our very best. Value statements adopted in November 2015 reflect our culture and guide the actions of faculty, staff, and leadership as we build on this foundation for quality enhancement.
