A Message from the Principal

Welcome to F. K. Marchman Technical College!

We are excited to be a part of the Pasco County School System and the community serving secondary and postsecondary learners.  Marchman opened its doors in 1984 and has grown tremendously in that time.  In fact, Marchman is going through quite a change.  Recently we adopted the tag line and are transitioning to re-brand ourselves to state:  “Reinvent Yourself…we did.”

We are close to completing a 2 year, $15 million dollar renovation project that improved our campus tremendously!  Buildings were updated with technology, programs received the latest in equipment and facilities, and the campus was refreshed with a new makeover.  The changes brought a fresh new perspective and all the programs at Marchman up to industry standards.  This wouldn’t have been possible without your (our community) support and approval.  Millions of dollars were allocated to the project due to the Penny for Pasco campaign.  On behalf of my students and staff, I thank you!

This year as we continue to expand our school we are expanding course offerings.  We now offer Auto Service Technology and Cosmetology in the evenings.  We recently partnered with the IEC (Independent Electrical Contractors) and offer an apprenticeship course in the evenings as well.  It is our goal to increase evening offerings to help accommodate the needs of our working community.

With that, we still continue to offer ABE (Adult Basic Education)/GED and ESOL courses in the evening.  So, if you’ve been thinking about your GED or have always wanted to complete high school, think about the possibilities we can afford you at Marchman Technical College.
