We hear you students: You want activities, fun and connection at school. At our tuition-free 6th-12th grade school, we are committed to creating a climate where students take charge of their future, find a place to belong, and grow their interests.
We’re so serious about having fun and getting you connected, that we’ve hired Mr. Jeffrey Kline to be our Activities Director. A native Floridian, Mr. Kline is a natural fit for this role: outside of school he can be found enjoying the Florida sun and beaches while running, biking, kayaking, camping, or just taking a nice walk. He is a lifelong fan of playing and watching sports. Who better than this dynamo to plan activities for our students?
We posed the question, “What can I do at Micanopy?” to Mr. Kline and he came back to us with an extensive list of activities offered by faculty. Check out his answers below:

Soccer Club: Soccer drills and games every other Tuesday.

In addition to coordinating many of these activities, Mr. Kline teaches History, English and PE. He holds a B.A. in History and an M.A. in Social Science Education. He has worked tirelessly to not only form our volleyball and soccer teams but organize all of their games by reaching out to local private and charter schools. Coach Kline empowers our students to become leaders through our student government program and as an author, musician, and athlete, he is truly a modern day Renaissance man.
