Creating Career Pathways To Success

Career pathways in Flagler Schools are aligned with targeted industries in our community and region and we support the creation of a pipeline of talent by offering opportunities from elementary age through adults. Through our Flagship Programs and Career and Technical Education offerings the pipeline allows our elementary students to explore career paths, our middle school students to grow their skill sets, and our high school and adult students to find success in career opportunities as they earn certifications, build networks with our local businesses, and receive opportunities for work based experiences.

Opportunities abound in multiple career paths such as corporate and financial services, aviation/aerospace, high technology, construction, governmental services, hospitality, entrepreneurship, agriculture and more. A student who embarks on a journey in one of the identified paths has a chance to follow this straight to a career in our community.

Acceleration Opportunities

Flagler Palm Coast High School and Matanzas High School offer strong acceleration programs for our students. We have a full International Baccalaureate program as well as Cambridge Advance International Certification of Education. Our students have also increased participation in Advance Placement classes significantly.

Dual enrollment programs allow students to earn college credit while in high school. Flagler Schools has agreements with Daytona State College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and the University of Florida. By offering classes locally, barriers have been removed for students who could not access these courses on a university campus. This increases participation of traditionally under represented populations.

Opportunities For All

Our students with disabilities join us on these career paths. The TRAIL Transition Program provides opportunities into career paths for our young adults with disabilities.

To date the TRAIL has linked 56 participants with Vocational Rehabilitation, and found competitive paid employment for 34 participants.

Princeton Village has partnered with Flagler Schools this year to provide on the job training at their facility under the "Project SEARCH" program. Former TRAIL students attend training classes, and receive job support and skills training at Princeton Village. The program goal is to fully prepare these interns for a career.
