  COLLEGIATE HIGH SCHOOL

COLLEGIATE HIGH SCHOOL


We are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for the students of Clay, Putnam, and St. Johns counties: the St. Johns River State College Collegiate High School program. The Collegiate High School program allows admitted students to complete a full 60 credits of dual enrollment coursework, culminating in earning both a standard high school diploma as well as an Associate of Arts (AA) Degree upon the completion of four years of high school.

Current students in grades 5-8 who are interested in being eligible to participate in the program as a 9th grader should plan to be on track to take at least one academic (math, English, science, language) high school course while an 8th grader. Eighth graders must have a minimum of an unweighted 3.0 GPA in their core academic course work (math, English, etc.) AND a minimum of an unweighted 3.0 GPA in their high school courses in order to be eligible to apply to the Collegiate High School. In St. Johns County, students will begin the collegiate high school in the 10th grade, and must have a minimum of an unweighted 3.0 GPA in their high school courses in order to be eligible.

Collegiate High School students will have full access to all extracurricular activities on their high school campus as any other student would, as their schedule and interests allow. All transportation in grades 9-11 must be provided by the student/family, unless the child is already zoned for the high school. Senior year transportation to the campus of SJR State will be the responsibility of the student/family. In Putnam County, senior year transportation from Interlachen High School to the Palatka campus of SJR State will be provided by the Putnam County School District.

St. Johns River State College is committed to providing this program to students in Clay, Putnam, and St. Johns counties. We believe that there are many students who will benefit from both the academic rigor and the acceleration achieved by simultaneously earning an Associate in Arts degree and high school diploma.

If you are or have a student in Clay, Putnam, and St. Johns counties and wish to learn more about this exciting opportunity and the application process, please join SJR State at an informational session in the early spring of the student’s 8th grade year for Clay and Putnam students and the early spring of the student’s 9th grade year for St. Johns County students. All interested 8th or 9th grade students and parents must attend one of the sessions in their School District in order to apply. If the number of eligible students who apply exceeds the number of seats allowed for the program, a lottery will be applied for the final selection.


The deadline to participate in 2018-2019 has passed.
Information session dates will be posted January 2019 for the 2019-2020 academic year.
