8th Grade Families: Career Academy Showcase

By Lindsey Johnson

Do you have an 8th grader? There are many options for high school in Alachua County.

On Thursday, November 18th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Eastside High School (in the outdoor mall area), local schools with specialty programs will be hosting an open house for students and families to explore options. There is no formal presentation so families can arrive anytime between 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. to talk to as many programs as they would like.
