Record Year for Valencia College’s Collegiate Academy

Tuesday, June 18th 2019

This year, the power of Lake Nona’s collaborative learning environment produced the highest number of graduates from Lake Nona High School and Valencia College’s Collegiate Academy. In 2019, 29 Collegiate Academy students received A.A. degrees and their high school diplomas – a new record for the program that celebrated its 10th anniversary this year.


Since beginning in 2009, the Collegiate Academy program has offered students advanced opportunities in multiple areas of academic and professional interest with dedicated faculty and advisors to support and encourage students. The program allows Lake Nona High School students to build a highly competitive academic profile that exceeds the scope of traditional high school programs with the financial benefit of no tuition, book costs, or program fees. Because of the proximity of Lake Nona High School to Valencia College, Collegiate Academy students can also continue in other high school classes, sports, and extracurricular programs during the school year.


Every year, Collegiate Academy students are accepted and transfer to colleges all over the United States. Recent 2019 graduates were accepted to Columbia University, University of Notre Dame, West Point Military Academy, University of California, and Johns Hopkins among the top out-of-state schools.


Congratulations to all of this year’s graduates!
