Duval County Schools Acceleration Programs Recruitment Events

High School Acceleration Programs are available in every Duval County public high school to provide advanced educational opportunities to students throughout the county. Students are urged to review the program offerings and attend one or more information session or open house to learn more about enrollment and how the programs can better prepare students for post-secondary education.

“These programs allow students the opportunity to earn college credit while concurrently earning their high school diploma,” said Duval County Public Schools Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals. “The programs are available in all neighborhood schools, so no matter what school you attend, an advanced educational program is available.”

The four acceleration programs are Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE), Advanced Placement  (AP) Honors, Early College, and International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

The AICE program is an internationally recognized, rigorous, pre-university curriculum and examination system for highly motivated, academically oriented high school students. The AICE program is available at Fletcher, Forrest, Mandarin and Raines high schools.

The AP Honors Program challenges students to display exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines. The AP Honors Program is available at Andrew Jackson, A. Phillip Randolph, Atlantic Coast, Baldwin, Darnell-Cookman, Douglas Anderson, First Coast, Paxon and Stanton high schools.

Early College blends high school and college courses to enable students to earn a high school diploma and an Associate degree with no financial cost. The Early College Program is available at Englewood, Lee, Sandalwood and Ribault high schools.

The IB Diploma Program is a rigorous, internationally recognized pre-university course of study for highly motivated students. The IB Program is available at Ed White, Paxon, Ribault, Stanton, Terry Parker and Wolfson high schools.

The school district is committed to providing high quality educational opportunities that will inspire all students to acquire and use the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a global economy, and culturally diverse world.
