The Flagler County Education Foundation is proud to help support Flagler County’s Innovative Flagship Programs. Each public school offers a unique Flagship Program, which allows students unique opportunities to discover paths that lead them from the classroom to career success. The Flagler Schools community truly believe our children will drive the future. Let’s ensure they are prepared.
The Flagler County Economic Development Council identified the following as targeted industries in Flagler County and beyond: advanced manufacturing, agriculture, aviation/aerospace, life sciences and high technology. Each of the Flagler County Public Schools has developed a center of excellence, or Flagship Program, to engage students’ interests, develop creative thinking, collaboration and skills in science, technology, engineering and math. These programs are designed to support student career interests as they go from elementary classrooms to high school graduation. This unique design we refer to as the Classrooms to Careers initiative.
Program initiatives listed by each Flagler County Public School:
