Talent Pipeline

Flagler Schools continues our commitment to building pathways to success for our students and a pipeline of talent for our community. Surrounding our students from grades K to Post-Secondary with opportunities to explore careers, interact and build relationships with industry experts, earn certifications aligned with Flagler’s targeted industries, experience on the job training, and personalize their learning choices to develop their talents builds a 360° system of supports around them as they travel the pathway from Classroom to Careers. Our community and educational partners are a critical component of this support structure.

We continue to expand career pathways aligned with industry needs. The Medical Flagship opened at Flagler Palm Coast High School in 2019-20 with an enrollment of 113 students. Students choosing this path will train in an industry-grade space and can earn job-ready credentials through dual enrollment with Flagler Technical Center.

Through philanthropic support from community leaders and organizations, in partnership with our Flagler Education Foundation, a public private partnership continues to grow and provide resources to develop and grow our Flagship Programs. A grant through the United Way to our Education Foundation is funding a Career Coaching Model designed to create mentor relationships with our students in Career Pathways and Industry experts.

Opportunities For All

Creating a Pipeline of Talent and developing a full system of career supports is inclusive of our students with disabilities. Advanced vocational training is offered to help develop students at all levels. The STREAM Program, High School High Tech, TRAIL Transition Program, and Project SEARCH Program provide supports to steer our young adults with disabilities into career paths.

Princeton Village partnered with Flagler Schools last year in the Project SEARCH Program. Former TRAIL students attend training classes, receive job support and intern at the Princeton Village facility. Our initial class of students from this program achieved 100% employment upon completion of their internship programs and our second class of students is well under way.

Flagler Schools graduates have been accepted to all major in-state universities, as well as Duke, Georgia Tech, Northwestern, North Carolina, Penn State, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Virginia, the United States Military Academy, and the United States Air Force Academy.

The Class of 2019 had 37 students receive an Associate of Arts degree from Daytona State College. The first graduating class from the Fire Leadership Academy also saw 11 students earning their Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) through Flagler Technical College.
