     Academies of Distinction

    Building on its history of success in career technical education, Pinellas County Schools is moving into a new era with Academies of Distinction that will provide students with a 21st Century industry-based education that leads to the acquisition of a specific demonstrated skill set leading to employment or continuing education.

    Each class will be taught by a certified teacher who also holds industry-based credentials or certification specific to the Academy of Distinction. Each student leaving an Academy of Distinction will have the opportunity to earn a traditional diploma, at least one industry certification, and be eligible for a Bright Futures/Gold Seal Scholarship.
