Santa Fe College is opening its new high school this fall and there are a few seats still available to interested students. 

The Academy of Science and Technology, to be located on SF’s Northwest Campus in Gainesville, announced that there are still a few openings for the charter high school that is set to open on Aug. 10.

The school’s inaugural class of ninth graders will start with a standard high school curriculum and then move into college-level courses as early as their sophomore year.

The students enrolled in the Academy will select one of four college-level tracks. The charter school will offer two tracks in health sciences and two tracks in information technology.

“This is an incredible opportunity for Alachua County students,” principal Bill McElroy said in a press release. “To be able to get a jump start in these in-demand career fields while still in high school creates opportunities for economic mobility for the student, and supports workforce needs for our entire community.” 

Students graduating from the Academy will have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma, at least two industry certifications and an Associate in Science degree. They can also attend the school at no cost to themselves or their families. 

To apply, students should email or call 352-395-4444.
