Curriculum

Our curriculum is aligned with Florida’s new B.E.S.T. standards to prepare students for success in college and career pursuits. By focusing on developing critical thinking skills and content knowledge across multiple domains, the curriculum prepares students to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.

 

High achieving students can take honors courses in certain subjects which will help them prepare for Dual Enrollment/AP classes and qualify for scholarships.

 

MA offers on-campus electives such as Theatre, Home Economics, and Journalism. Students may supplement our electives during the school day in our lab with online FLVS courses like Photography, Forensic Science, Criminal Justice, Driver’s Ed, and more.

Special Programs

MA is currently the only Charter School in Alachua County to offer Dual Enrollment through Santa Fe College. Students who qualify for this program can earn college and high school credits at the same time - for FREE! 


We offer Industry Certifications through the FLVS to ALL of our interested students in grades 7-11.

 

There are currently 20 online classes for certifications in:
Microsoft  -  Oracle  -  Adobe  -  CompTIA  -  Cisco
Students can earn up to 12 college credits and meet the Career and Technical requirement for The Gold Medal/Bright Futures scholarship through this certification program.

NEW Civics and Law Program, 9 - 12 Grades

We are excited to announce our newest addition to the curriculum, designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand and engage in civic life. The Civics and Law Program program aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the legal and political systems that shape our society, and the rights and responsibilities of citizens within them.

Extracurriculars, Field Trips & Travel 

Extracurriculars include:

Afterschool Clubs such as Theatre Club, Gaming Club, and Soccer Club and more.

Students are invited to suggest and create their own clubs.

School Activities such as Student Government, Student Debate, Maker Space, Drama, Art and more.

Special Events such as Schoolwide Red vs Blue Sports Competitions, Field Day, Cookouts, Dances, Concerts, Scavenger Hunts, Walking Trips into Town, Occasional Snowball Fights and more​.

Field Trips & Travel:

Micanopy Academy students take many field trips throughout the year to fun and educational places like the Butterfly Museum, the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire, DEFY Gainesville Trampoline Park, University of Florida IFAS Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, University of Florida Engineering Fair, Silver Springs State Park, and many more.

High school students have the opportunity to attend cultural enrichment field trips to distant locations like New York City and Peru.

Community Service

Helping others is an integral part of being a good citizen. We expect our students to contribute a minimum of 75 hours of community service by the time they graduate. Students can fulfill this requirement in various ways. This component will also meet prerequisites for scholarships and college entrance.

Athletics

In addition to the sports that MA offers, students may play any sport through the school they are zoned for.

Graduation Requirements

We follow Florida’s High School 24-credit program: 4 credits of English/LA, 4 credits of Math, 3 credits of Science, 3 credits of Social Studies, 1 credit of Fine & Performing Arts, Speech & Debate, or Practical Arts, 1 credit of PE/HOPE, 8 credits of Electives.

Did you know that about 30% of our students graduate ahead of schedule every year? Careful planning, personalized attention and accelerated programming make this dream a reality for many Micanopy students. If you are ready to get a head start on life, early graduation is a great option.
