St. Petersburg Collegiate High School Reviews

St. Petersburg Collegiate High School provides the great opportunity to graduate high school with your A.A. degree. On the high school side, the faculty invests their time in getting to know you, ensuring that you are passing, and teaching you life skills for post-graduation -- this is a major highlight of this school that is (from what I've noticed) absent from nearby public high schools. In the past two years, we learned proper professional attire/eating habits/greetings, how to craft a resume, leadership skills, and more.
On the college side, since all of your classes are college courses, you eventually learn how to interact with professors (about grades, assignments, etc.) and how to adapt to college coursework/expectations. You definitely cultivate independence and time management since all responsibilities are placed on you, the student (no direct parent communication allowed with the professors!). Transferring here has been my best major life decision!

Switching schools from St. Pete High School (IB Program) to ST. Pete Collegiate was one of the best decisions I made in my life.

By the time I graduate class of 2018 I will have my High School Diploma and AA, guaranteed! When I was in IB, there was a possibility I'd take the exams in the end, get one point away from the mark and NOT get my IB diploma.

THERE IS NO BUSY WORK! When I transferred, I expected college life to be as rigorous as my IB teachers claimed, but I'm flying through my college classes with all A's. You can schedule your classes however you'd like with regards to Pinellas County guidelines, but in one semester I went to school at 9:30 and was done by 12:15, EVERYDAY. Oh, and no school Friday for Juniors and Seniors (unless you schedule your classes that way).

You can do sports from your original school too!

I couldn't ask for a better school and I promise it'll be the best decision anyone makes if they want a welcoming and supporting environment.
St. Petersburg Collegiate High School is a great school. As soon as you take your first steps on campus, you feel welcomed. The staff greet everyone with a smile and take the time to truly get to know every single student. Every teacher, professor and administrator knows everything about you during the first month through the simple day-to-day communications and friendly talks one has with them. A student is also surrounded by like-minded hardworking and bright individuals that push one to only become the better version of themselves. In college, there is a lot of busy and challenging work, but it prepares you for future tasks in other universities. It is really a rewarding program.
