KEY WEST, FL, March 16, 2023— The College of the Florida Keys invites prospective students, their family members, and the community to learn about CFK Academy at an information event on Thursday, March 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the CFK Academy building on the Key West Campus. Through presentations given in the classrooms of the new building, attendees will learn about the unique learning opportunities provided and the benefits of attending the tuition-free public charter high school. College representatives will answer questions and provide guidance about enrolling. Those interested in attending the event are asked to R.S.V.P. on the CFK Academy webpage at CFK.edu/CFKAcademy.
CFK Academy, which opens in August, focuses on college and career readiness with curriculum centered on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and Career Technical Education (CTE). Project-based learning experiences provide students with hands-on engagement in the learning process to develop skills, knowledge, and character. CFK Academy students are encouraged to earn college credit—at no cost to the student—through the College’s Dual Enrollment program in classes conveniently located on the same campus as the high school. Motivated students can graduate with their high school diploma as well as an associate degree, certificate, and/or industry certification.
The application for the 2023- 24 school year can be found on the CFK website at CFK.edu/CFKAcademy. CFK Academy will start with grades nine through 11 in its inaugural year and will add grade 12 in the 2024- 25 school year.[livemarket market_name="KONK Life LiveMarket" limit=3 category=“” show_signup=0 show_more=0]
