Our mission statement: Our mission at Workforce Advantage Academy Inc. is to create learning environments for high school students, particularly those rising juniors and seniors who desire a different approach to reach their potential. Through attendance at Workforce Academy, our students develop the academic, employment and social skills that they need to build rewarding lives and promote positive change in their communities.
Workforce Advantage Academy offers a core curriculum of English, math, science, social studies, business, transition to work and life management, with a special focus on improving skills necessary to pass the standard achievement tests. During a student’s tenure at Workforce Advantage Academy, young men and women will develop a graduation plan for college, job placements, technical school, the military or some other goal.
Workforce Advantage Academy is operated by a dedicated team of education professionals, with no ties to a management company.
Workforce Advantage Academy is pleased to announce our Parent Representatives for the 2022-2023 School Year are Nerrica and Rufus Devine.
Because the academy serves only 11th- and 12th-grade students, it does not receive a school letter grade. To learn more about school grades, visit the Florida Department of Education’s Web site: https://schoolgrades.fldoe.org/
