I want to let you know about the Cambridge Pre-AICE Magnet Program at Heron Creek Middle School. This is one of the most prestigious and rigorous college preparatory programs in the world. A 2011 study at Universities in Florida found that Cambridge program graduates had an average end-of-freshman year GPA of 3.46, whereas students coming from other acceleration mechanisms, such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) had an average GPA of 3.12 and 3.10 respectively.
There is an application process for acceptance to this prestigious program. It is open to all students regardless of their school assignment as Cambridge at the Creek has been recognized by the Sarasota County School Board as a magnet program.
Students accepted to the Cambridge program at Heron Creek Middle will have the opportunity to:
- Earn high school credits by taking Pre-AICE classes
- Participate in at least one College visit
- Prepare for the AICE Diploma available at North Port High School
- Develop a Personalized College Preparatory Plan
- Be assigned to a College Prep Counselor
The application deadline for the 2019-2020 school year is March 27, 2020.
We are proud to provide a world-class honors education right here in North Port.
