Julia Ann Kasch Honors Academy

Frank Phillips College is committed to quality and integrity in the educational experience.  The College is dedicated to providing unique and appropriate facilities for learning, and faculty and staff are relentless in their pursuit to improve the students' experience in and out of the classrooms.  Part of the pursuit includes meeting the needs of high-risk learners who best succeed by embracing their pursuit of knowledge independently yet collectively in a setting conducive to the kind of ownership of their education that creates life-long learners and productive contributors to society. 

The Academy is not a program based on grades alone, but instead a program in which student scholars create a community of like-minded learners in which the environment fosters creative and critical thinking in an application of the knowledge.  Students enrolled in the Academy enjoy the flexibility of participating in the creation of the honors courses and take pride in the ownership of their own education.  Faculty members who participate in the Academy are partners in learning and mentors to students. Their focus is not on teaching the students but on helping students find the wonderment in their own discoveries.  The Academy embraces those learners who learn in non-traditional ways and who best demonstrate their understanding and mastery of information through projects and applied learning.  Students in the program have often struggled in the traditional classroom because they do not feel challenged and because they do not have the opportunity to demonstrate what they really know in ways other than tests.

For questions about the Honors Society or more information on how to join contact Catherine Hodges at ext.767 OR Derrick Cummings at ext.632.

Pre-Medical Career Club

The FPC PMCC is an organization supporting students on an academic track leading to a medical or allied health career.  Membership requirements are simple: Be an FPC student enrolled in a course that could be part of a pre-medical career track, indicate you wish to join, pay your dues and you are officially a member.  Members in good standing have the right to run for office, vote on Club matters, attend Club functions and place items on the meeting agenda to be discussed by the group as a whole.  This organization is a place for support when you are taking the more arduous courses and feel like you have no social life.  You do!  The Club will meet your need for socializing while also supporting your efforts to achieve your academic goals through group study sessions that are scheduled throughout each semester.  In addition, the Club is committed to community service to the school and the community at large, as this is why students go into a medical career and it's never too soon to get involved.  Finally, it is a group that will participate in activities to expand the members' understanding of the field of medicine.
