HIGH SCHOOL

COMMUNITY AS CAMPUS

The Eco-High school program will cultivate young people who view themselves as resources to and for the continued vitality of their communities. Students will use the Eau Gallie Arts District as a campus, working together to cultivate a sustainable, agricultural center while creating tangible connections between their actions and their community impact. We have developed meaningful partnerships (Eco-Collective Partners) with institutions, businesses and organizations within the arts district to help lay the foundation for a curriculum that will include internships and apprenticeships along with core specializations in agri-business, agricultural science/technology and sustainability science.

Utilizing a place-based, community-as-campus approach, our program will immerse students in the unique heritage, culture and landscape of the Eau Gallie Arts District. With a primary classroom located on an urban farm/community garden, students will combine their required high school curriculum with a distinct program track of their choice. All students will complete required courses in sustainability and agronomy in order to graduate.
