Our Mission:


The mission of the Highlands Career Institute at South Florida State College is to provide an opportunity for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade Highlands County students to complete high school and career and technical education courses at one convenient location.

Students will prepare for a career in an area of interest which will develop workplace readiness and may lead to an industry-recognized certification.

The Highlands Career Institute will focus on real-life application of student learning while motivating students to graduate from high school.
