Programs of Emphasis

A Program of Emphasis provides a structured study strand centered on a career pathway. Students who are zoned for the school may select the Program of Emphasis, and a limited number of seats in some of the programs listed in this guide may be available for 9th grade students who are not zoned to the school. Acceptance for out-of-zone students to a Program of Emphasis is by application only. For details on Programs of Emphasis at Seminole County Public Schools, visit the ePathways website.
