i3 Academy

Flagler Schools is pleased to continue to bring to our district an opportunity for students to seek a personalized path to their education. In conjunction with the New Tech Network of Schools, a New Tech Academy opened in August of 2013 at Flagler-Palm Coast High School. This innovative approach to education was open to all 2013–14 freshman and sophomore students in Flagler County. In each of the following years a class was added (junior and senior) and the numbers continue to grow.

The i3 Academy offers all core content courses and graduation requirements for students in a setting that is based on the following beliefs: "A Culture that Empowers, Teaching that Engages, and Technology that Enables." At the i3 New Tech Academy students learn to work collaboratively in a project-based learning approach to the curriculum that utilizes a one-to-one technology environment. A student driven culture of respect, responsibility, and trust is deeply embedded in the New Tech philosophy.

As part of Flagler’s premier learning organization, the i3 New Tech Academy will create students that become reflective, self­-directed, goal-­oriented, and responsible citizens. Our students will be ready to graduate with the skills necessary to be aware, eligible, and prepared for the college and career path of their choice.

Flagler's i3 New Tech Academy will provide a culture that empowers students to become owners of their own learning by providing an untethered learning environment, centered around authentic investigative experiences, provided through collaborative project based learning and embedded technology.
