Programs at Hollins High School
Choose one, Choose two, or Choose ALL THREE!
Hollins High School is proud to host three world class District Application Programs:
Flexibility + Opportunity + Excellence
As a Hollins High School Programs Student, you have access to ALL of the courses offered throughout our three Programs.
For example, if you are a Cambridge student, you can also take a Culinary class as well as a course (or two) in Game Design, Music Production, Filmmaking, Animation, Brand U, Photography and many others. The only limitation is whether you have space in your course schedule.
One of our primary goals is for students to have the flexibility to explore a variety of personal interests, discover new passions, and also have opportunities to develop and advance in those areas of interest. Each of our three programs has been designed to maximize flexibility, while also maintaining rigor and high expectations.
Below is a brief description of each program. Use the links to explore each program in more depth.
The Academy of Entertainment Arts courses are for students that want to CREATE their own:
- Music (songs, beats, recording, producing, film scores, game scores, etc. )
- Games (PC, mobile, RPG, side-scroller, etc.)
- Films (short films, episodes, commercials)
- Animations (2D, 3D, motion graphics)
- Digital Brand (YouTube, podcasts, influencers, etc.)
- Photos (camera, digital art)
- Graphic Designs (posters, logos, magazine layouts)
- Apps (Android games and apps)
- Characters (2D drawing, 3D model, special effects makeup)

Many of these programs cannot be found anywhere else in the county, let alone all under one roof where creators, producers, artists, and influencers of different disciplines can all co-develop in a thriving culture of collaboration, artistry, and originality.
Cambridge courses are advanced-level courses, intended for students pursuing the Cambridge diploma. These are ideal classes for typicaly college-bound students looking for "honors" or AP type courses with a high level of rigor.
Advanced International Certificate of Education, AICE, is an innovative and accelerated method of academic study offered solely through the University of Cambridge. In contrast to IB, the AICE program is not a prescribed set of classes but allows students the flexibility to choose a course of study that best meets their abilities and interests. Students who earn the AICE Diploma and complete the required community service hours, qualifies for the maximum Florida Bright Futures Scholarship.
