Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society for two-year Colleges

The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders. Phi Theta Kappa makes this happen for millions of college students through the hallmarks of Scholarship, Fellowship, Leadership and Service.

Phi Theta Kappa was established in 1918 to recognize and encourage scholarship among Associate degree students. The ACC Sigma Phi chapter was chartered in 1968. We have inducted over 3300 members and have maintained a five star status for over 15 years.
