Overstreet says that she’s thrilled to announce a new partnership with State College of Florida at Lakewood Ranch, where beginning January 12, the Academy will have a home on the east campus with office and classroom space. “In addition, our alliance with SCF includes cooperative programming with their educational services division, free no-permit-required parking, and discounts at the campus café. We appreciate the opportunity that SCF has extended to us and we look forward to building on this educational partnership as both SCF and the Academy continue to grow,” she says.
