About ExCELThe Exploring Careers & Education in Leadership (ExCEL) is a county-wide magnet application program. Students receive arterial bus transportation throughout Pinellas County to ExCEL. Our students are selected by grades, test scores and behavior.The ExCEL magnet program at Largo High School is an academically rigorous program in which scholars participate in honors and Advanced Placement (AP) level courses. In addition, scholars in ExCEL are required to take the AVID elective and follow AVID's national requirements which include a progressively rigorous academic schedule. ExCEL scholars are required to career shadow twice a year and participate in ExCEL school activities.Scholars who typically do well in this program earn mostly As and Bs on their report cards, maintaining a 2.5 average and earn a score of 325 or higher on their FSA assessments. Scholars new to Pinellas County Schools who do not have an FSA score can look at their standardized test scores from their previous school to determine if they have at least a 4 stanine or higher in both reading/language arts and mathematics.Once enrolled in the program, scholars must attend all classes regularly, maintain a minimum weighted GPA of 2.0 in 9th grade, 2.3 in 10th grade and 2.5 in 11th and 12th grades as well as abide by the Code of Student Conduct. Falling below these expectations may result in placement on probation and/or dismissal from the program. Please review the District Application Program Procedures available on the Pinellas County Schools website for further information.To learn more about the application process, please visit the District Application Program page at https://www.pcsb.org/Page/837.
