Vertical Training Program is a partnership between FSCJ, Nassau Public Schools, and Duval County Public Schools and serves students with developmental disabilities. Participating students have received all their credits for a special diploma but have decided to continue their education in a career/technical program via dual enrollment on a state college campus. The program was established by a grant awarded to FSCJ by the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council.
