Press release from Santa Fe College

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Santa Fe College’s Academy of Science and Technology, a high school on the college’s Northwest Campus that will be opening to 9th-graders in Alachua County in the fall of 2023, is still accepting applications for the upcoming school year. Applications are available by emailing academy@sfcollege.edu or by calling 352-395-4444.  

Students at the Academy will begin with a standard high school course load before moving into college-level courses by their sophomore year. Students will select one of four college-level tracks, with two tracks in health sciences and two tracks in information technology. Students who graduate from the Academy will have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma, an Associate in Science degree, and at least two industry certifications. Students will also be able to attend the school at no cost to themselves or their families, eliminating a potential barrier to economic mobility. 

“Our goal is to have our student population be representative of the Gainesville community,” SF’s Executive Director of Secondary Programs, Dr. Jen Homard said. “This will be an incredible opportunity for our students. It will enhance our Secondary programs at the college and create more workforce development programs in Career and Technical Education fields in our community.’
