• Academic Institutes  


    Welcome to a bold new pathway for secondary education in Mississippi.

    In 2010, Gulfport High School began the transformation to be the first public high school in the state to realign its educational structure to offer The Academic Institutes, a mix of intensive academic curriculum and career-focused, project-based learning to help students navigate their way to greater success after graduation-whether in higher education or in the workforce. 

    This innovative program includes the formation of distinct Academic Institutes based on the 16 National Career Clusters. This initiative represents a nationwide movement to ensure future generations are attuned, prepared, and properly equipped to thrive in our competitive global economy.

    In 2017 Gulfport High School completed a $40+ million dollar renovation of the Academic, Arts, and Athletic facilities. The state-of-the-art buildings are designed to present students with a combination of services and curriculum like no other high school in the state of Mississippi.
