    The ExCEL magnet program promotes career and college readiness and leadership development through hands-on learning.  Students engage in real-world problem-solving and gain valuable experience through career shadowing opportunities.  ExCEL embraces the philosophy and strategies of the AVID program through tutoring, mentoring, study skills instruction, and peer group support.  Incorporating the AVID elective course into the ExCEL curriculum helps our students prepare for life after high school while building on the success they may have experienced in middle school AVID programs.  Non-traditional instructional methods such as project-based learning, alternative assessment and educational opportunities beyond the classroom are what make the ExCEL magnet program a unique and rewarding high school experience.

    ExCEL is a county-wide magnet program selecting students throughout Pinellas County to join our student-centered environment.  Arterial school bus transportation is provided.
