With our myriad of athletic teams and clubs, along with exceptional college and career preparatory programs, the opportunity exists for you to prepare yourselves for a wonderful future.

Our advanced academic programs include the Cambridge Academy, sponsored by the University of Cambridge in England, offering the Advanced International Certificate of Examination (AICE) in a multitude of subject areas; the Advanced Placement Program, sponsored by the College Board; Dual enrollment opportunities during the school day on-campus and after school, sponsored by Florida International University; and dual enrollment classes off-campus, during the school day, as well as evenings and weekends. Students who take advantage of these courses can earn many college course credits before even leaving high school.

Additionally, we have partnered with the National Academy Foundation (NAF), a national network of high school academies, and developed several career-focused academies that will prepare you for college and the world of work – locally, nationally, and internationally. These academies include our Academy of International Finance, the Academy of Information Technology, the Academy of Hospitality & Tourism, and the Academy of Engineering. In addition to these NAF-affiliated academies, the school offers the following academies: The Academy of Biomedical Sciences, the Academy of Law Studies, the Academy of Arts and Entertainment, and the Academy of Education. Within these academies, students are free to explore strands related to their field of interest, with the opportunity to earn industry certifications.

Students, when selecting courses, select those that will not only meet your graduation requirements, but also provide new, broader educational experiences for you as you prepare yourselves for the future. With this in mind, please make sure to explore with the various extracurricular activities offered at our school.

Parents, your interest, attention, and assistance in supporting this important endeavor are of paramount importance. Your support will assist your son or daughter in making the transition from school to their career aspirations.

It is evident that we have something to offer everyone as we cater to varied tastes. Take advantage of the myriad clubs, teams, and classes available and make your high school years the memories that you will treasure forever, while preparing yourself with a world-class education for a global economy.

Please do not hesitate to call our school with any questions you might have.

As stated in the movie Gladiator, “What we do in life, echoes in eternity.” Remember that the Gladiator life is the life we live!
