Florida Keys Community College (FKCC) is a community college located in Key West, Florida (main campus on Stock Island, adjacent to what it purports to be the only living coral reef in North America). FKCC also operates two additional campuses in the Florida Keys; one in Marathon and another in Key Largo. With its Key West location, FKCC can claim the title of the southernmost post-secondary school of any type within the 48 contiguous United States.

FKCC offers two-year Associates degrees in various programs, as well as Associates degrees for students transferring to four-year institutions. As of 2011, FKCC had graduated over 1,000 nurses.[1] Among FKCC's unique degree programs (based on the needs of the Key West area) are Marine Technology, Marine Environmental Technology, and Diving Business & Technology.[2] FKCC also offers Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Management through an agreement with Hodges University.

FKCC also operates the Tennessee Williams Fine Arts Center, named for the famed playwright who lived in Key West.
