SJCSD to showcase ‘Programs of Choice’ Jan. 18


The St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) will host a “Program of Choice Showcase” for middle and high school students Thursday, Jan. 18., from 3:30 to 7 p.m. at the World Golf Village Convention Center in St. Augustine.

Programs of Choice are offered to support a student’s interests, career plans or advanced academic needs. A student who enrolls in a Program of Choice participates in theme-related classes over a multi-year time period. More than 40 percent of high school students in St. Johns County are enrolled in various Programs of Choice, which include Junior ROTC, St. Johns County Center for the Arts, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education, as well as 19 Career Academy options.

Students and staff from each high school will be on hand at the event to provide information and answer questions about the Programs of Choice offered at their schools. Information about program requirements and registration will also be available. Any student who meets an individual program’s requirements and who can provide his/ her own transportation may be approved to attend any high school on a “space available” basis.
