When Hall of Fame golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez started a school on his golf course in Clearwater, Florida, he believed that the golf course could make a better environment for learning than a traditional classroom for some kids.
We are determined to positively impact the graduation rate of our community and prepare our students for the most important game of all, life.
