Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the international honor society for two-year colleges, symbolizing excellence in higher education and a commitment to students. PTK has recognized and encouraged scholarships among two-year college students for 85 years by providing stimulation and enrichment while promoting the academic integrity of the associate degree program.
Virginia is one of 39 states participating in the All-State Academic Teams program introduced in 1994 as a way to provide scholastic recognition to PTK members while promoting excellence at two-year colleges. The All-Virginia Academic Team is designed to recognize high achieving college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society.
