The district’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programmes are offered at Celebration High and Gateway High. IB is a continuum of international education and rigorous assessment that develops the intellectual, personal, emotional, and social skills to live, learn, and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
NeoCity Academy’s mission is to develop students who believe that the world can be a better place. The school actively engages students in inquiry-driven, project-based learning. The school’s partnership with UCF allows students access to courses that are well beyond the limits of traditional high schools. The school offers three pathways: BioDesign, Cybersecurity, and Engineering.
The district’s Professional and Technical High School is a magnet public high school. PATHS students can earn both a regular high school diploma and industry certifications from oTECH. In addition, it is the only Collegiate High School in Osceola County, which enables students to complete two CAPE industry certifications plus earn 30 hours of college credit at Valencia College.
