KEY WEST, FL, January 22, 2024— The College of the Florida Keys invites middle and high school students and their family members to the CFK Academy Showcase on Thursday, February 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the CFK Academy on the College’s Key West Campus. The event will provide key information about the tuition-free public charter high school that opened in August 2023. Attendees will be able to see exhibits created by current students, tour the school, and meet the CFK Academy’s principal, teachers, staff, and students.
The CFK Academy focuses on college and career readiness with curriculum centered on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and Career Technical Education (CTE). Teachers use a Project-Based Learning (PBL) approach, which provides students hands-on engagement in the learning process beyond the traditional classroom. In the process they further develop critical-thinking and communication skills. CFK Academy students are encouraged to earn college credit 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. There is no cost to attend the CFK Academy, including the college level classes, potentially saving families tens of thousands of dollars.
Applications are now open for grades 9 through 12 for the 2024- 25 school year and can be found online at CFK.edu/CFKAcademy. Space is limited. Applications are due on February 26 and a lottery will be conducted on February 29.
