About Collegiate Academy
CF Collegiate Academy is a specialized early college program that provides students with an opportunity to jumpstart or even complete their college education before high school graduation. Students can earn some or all of their Associate in Arts degree (A.A.) for transfer to a bachelor’s degree or earn significant progress toward, or in some cases completion of, an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree through the College of Central Florida prior to completion of their high school diploma. Students pursuing Health Sciences programs may complete prerequisites for admission into limited access A.S. degrees upon high school graduation.
Collegiate Academy students are required to take a full course load (12 to 18 credit hours) at a CF campus or online and will have a realistic college experience that includes student activities, ample learning resources and engagement with all that CF campuses have to offer. Students in A.S. programs will also complete an internship.
After selecting the Collegiate Academy as their school choice in 8th grade, students will work with their high school guidance counselors to ensure all eligibility requirements are met while remaining at their base school in 9th and 10th grade. Once accepted into the Collegiate Academy, students in 11th and 12th grade will take classes full-time at a CF campus or online.
