South Tech Charter Academy, Inc. prohibits discrimination against students, employees, and applicants on the basis of religion, race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, marital status, age, parental status, or disability in all employment practices, programs, services or activities.


All students applying for admission to SouthTech Academy must complete and submit a timely application.  

The following are expectations for all applicants and enrolled students of SouthTech Academy:

  • A commitment from applicants and parents/guardians to participate in a four-year high school program of study that culminates in earning a high school diploma and industry certifications.
  • Acceptable Behavior: A behavior record that validates the student’s commitment to support and promote a safe school environment and a positive learning community. 
  • Acceptable Attendance: An attendance record that reflects the student’s interest in learning and willingness to participate in the educational process.  Students with documented chronic health issues will be provided additional support to assist their diminished ability to attend school.  Habitual truancy, however, will not be tolerated and will be subject to punishments provided under Florida Statutes.  
  • Academic Performance: Applicants and parents/guardians are hereby informed that Florida high school graduation requirements include a minimum of a 2.0 Grade Point Average and Level 3 ranking on Core Subject Area State Assessments.  Test scores lower than Level 3 may also lessen the student’s probability of earning career education certification or licensure (a major emphasis of SouthTech Academy) as such certifications are based on passing rigorous subject matter examinations.  Students must be willing to work and study diligently if they are to succeed in the rigorous academic and career education curricula provided by SouthTech Academy.  Students will demonstrate levels of academic performance required to meet graduation requirements. 
  • Failure to meet behavior, attendance, or academic performance requirements will result in escalating discipline and/or tutorial participation, including additional homework and other prescriptive activities, until the student is on-track for graduation.  
  • As part of this acknowledgement, parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to become members of the School Improvement Steering Committee and participate in the scheduled parent training opportunities.  


Applicants and Parents/Guardians, before signing this Acknowledgment please ensure that you understand the commitment that you are undertaking by doing so.  A successful applicant, who enrolls in SouthTech Academy, and the parents/guardians of that applicant, are acknowledging a commitment to a three-way partnership with the school to assure the applicant’s educational success.   SouthTech Academy’s ultimate Mission Statement is to graduate students prepared for work, for higher education, and for productive citizenship. Completing this application means entering into an agreement to help each student fulfill this mission.
