    In elementary and middle schools, students in the Gulfport School District begin learning about career pathways through focused career awareness and development activities. As students reach high school, they continue the process of examining and identifying career paths that connect with their interests and skill sets, while focusing on mastery of a rigorous academic curriculum with an emphasis on ACT preparedness. As students reach their junior year, they will begin experiencing structured opportunities to receive real-world exposure to their area of interest through assigned opportunities such as: seminars, project-based learning, clinical observations, internships, and job shadowing. Students continue to attend academic, career-related and college course offerings, as well as participate in extracurricular activities and school events.
    The Academic Institutes at Gulfport High School allow students the opportunity to discover and develop their passions, while empowering them to choose an educational pathway that integrates their skills, aptitude, and interests. We are committed to partnering with students, parents, faculty, community and business leaders, and institutes of higher learning to foster a supportive and holistic educational environment. We strive to present an experience that strengthens the chance of success as students transition from high school to traditional college, technical college, or the job market.
