Temple Terrace • Business • Communication • Music
Since its founding as a junior college in 1946, Florida College has drawn its staff, faculty, and the majority of its students from non-institutional churches of Christ. It is also recognized among these churches as an important training center for ministers. The college maintains no official connection with any religious body, however, for doctrinal reasons. This gives it some unique characteristics as religious colleges go – Florida College accepts no direct contributions from any organized religious body, and the members of its board serve as individuals rather than as official representatives of any religious body.
The high emphasis Florida College places on its Christian heritage is expressed in its tradition of daily chapel services. All members of the board of directors and all faculty members are required to be active members in a Church of Christ. All students are required to receive daily classes in biblical topics.

The Art Institute of Tampa opened in 2004. The Art Institute of Tampa was the 30th location within The Art Institutes system of schools.
Located at 4401 North Himes Avenue in Tampa, Florida, The Art Institute of Tampa is a branch of Miami International University of Art & Design, which is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
The institution was founded as Florida Bible Institute in Temple Terrace by Dr. William T. Watson, a fundamentalist tent preacher from North Carolina and pastor of a large Christian and Missionary Alliance church in St. Petersburg. The name was changed to Trinity College of Florida in 1947.
An important characteristic of the College has always been its distinctly interdenominational nature. At Trinity students from a wide variety of church backgrounds have the opportunity to study various interpretations of the Bible in an atmosphere of respect. In a world where interdenominational cooperation among evangelicals is increasingly vital, Trinity College of Florida believes that this type of education best serves its students as they prepare to live and serve more effectively.
The College's most famous alumnus is Billy Graham, who graduated from the College in 1940 and became one of the great evangelists in the history of the church. Jimmy G. Tharpe (1930–2008), founder of Louisiana Baptist University in Shreveport, Louisiana, received Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from Trinity in the 1950s.
