Flagler Schools recognizes the need to offer opportunities to discover paths leading students from our classrooms to career success. In order to do this, we worked with local business leaders to identify key, targeted industries right here in our community and our region. These include: agriculture, aerospace, green technology, health science, engineering, computer science, marine research, finance and business leadership and the arts. 

Our schools have established “Flagship Programs” within our campuses that tie into the targeted industries. With nearly two dozen such Flagship Programs spanning grades K-12, our students are provided an enriched education, infused with the essentials for college and career readiness. Additionally, our Classroom to Careers program sees value in offering career and technical certifications through Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. 

These programs prepare individuals for occupations important to Florida’s economic development. Each program is aligned with a career cluster and is detailed in curriculum frameworks. These frameworks include program standards that are both academically integrated and responsive to business and industry. Both our Flagship and CTE programs are successful thanks to the partnerships between education, business and industry, and trade associations.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs prepare students for occupations important to Florida’s economic development. With the help of partners, each program provides the academic and technical skills to prepare students for success in today’s economy. 

Each of the CTE programs is aligned with the following career cluster. 

  • Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources

  • Business, Management and Administration
