Graduation caps and gowns are provided at no charge to Collegiate High School seniors
for both the college and the high school graduation.
In addition to being able to studying in a college environment, the unique use of
technology across the curriculum, and the opportunity to earn a college degree tuition-free
simultaneous with a high school diploma, the Northwest Florida State College Collegiate
High School differs from existing honors or advanced placement programs in several
ways. The Collegiate High School offers a detailed program of study that leads directly
to college degree rather than a random acquisition of college credits. The Collegiate
High School provides easier access to comprehensive learning support services directly
related to a college-level curriculum. The school also offers a wider selection of
and access to college-level courses as well as the opportunity to customize a program
of study that is specific to a student's upper division major and prerequisites. Additionally,
the advanced subject expertise and academic resources of a college faculty and campus
are a distinct advantage for Collegiate High School students. The annual student led
conference allows our students a scheduled time to review their academic progress
and goals with their parents to demonstrate personal responsibility and accountability.
CHS seniors demonstrate mastery of high school and college level skills required for
further study or careers through a Senior Capstone Project. The Senior Capstone Project,
a Collegiate High School graduation requirement, provides students an opportunity
to study their own interests in greater depth and breadth. Through the Capstone experience
students assume responsibility for their own learning by active involvement in collecting,
selecting and reflecting on their education experiences at the Collegiate High School.
