About the Watson Center
Santa Fe College’s Watson Center in Keystone Heights, Fla. provides citizens of southeast Bradford County an opportunity to gain a college education close to home. The Watson Center consists of two educational buildings, computer labs, a state-of-the-art science lab, a common meeting area, offices, and space for the county constitutional officers and sheriff.
Located along Route 21 between Santa Fe Lake and Lake Geneva, the Watson Center is just 30 minutes east of Gainesville. The Watson Center was opened its first building in 2005 and a second building in 2006.
Also, the Watson Center property includes a 40-acre mowed area of mixed pines and oaks, a historic borrow pit, and an area of somewhat undisturbed upland sand hill habitat. This area, dubbed the Watson Woods, is used as an outdoor classroom.
The center also provides a High School Dual Enrollment program for local high school students to earn college credit, allowing them to jump-start their college education. Learn more about our Dual Enrollment program.

Watson Center Test Proctoring
The Blount Center offers several options for facilitating exams for students outside of class time. For the sake of convenience, those students taking online courses can coordinate with the instructor to schedule a time for their exam to be proctored here instead of the NW campus. For those students who attend courses at the Watson Center and need to make up an exam, we can also facilitate their exams in the same manner. We welcome you to make use of our safe, quiet and secure testing facilities. All testing is by appointment only. Tests should be scheduled at least two (2) full business days in advance of the proctoring date. Proctoring at the Watson Center is for online and Watson Center students only. If you have any questions, please contact: WatsonCenter@sfcollege.edu
