2020-2021 School Year Begins

The 2020-2021 school year officially started on August 17th at our St. Petersburg/Gibbs and Tarpon Springs (North Pinellas) locations. Due to the ongoing pandemic, both campuses were able to implement new technology and resources to allow for families to choose remote learning or a return to face to face learning. With the support of St. Petersburg College, teachers and staff have implemented innovative and creative ways to help welcome our new sophomores and continue to the strong level of education our students receive. The Collegiate High School staff working closely with the St. Petersburg College leadership has implemented new protocols focused on sanitizing and social distancing to ensure our students and staff have a safe environment to learn.

Additional resources, including latest announcements and FAQs, can be found in the college’s COVID-19 Information Hub. Please continue to follow CDC prevention guidelines as we work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We send our thanks to everyone who has assisted with the college’s Comeback Plan for fall, as well as all faculty and staff for their flexibility during this evolving situation.

The Comeback plan for the college can be accessed here: Comeback Plan as well as the video with more information.

Stay Informed/Student Resources

We have created a new COVID-19 website, which includes latest updates, as well as academic and student support resources to help you. Please bookmark this link and refer to it as needed as we continue to make updates with new strategies, tools and services.

Classes online in MyCourses

As you should be aware, your classes are online and loaded into MyCourses. If you are a student who was taking a face-to-face, on campus class and you have concerns or are struggling with the online platform, please reach out to your instructor. They are there to support you!

Please remember that these face-to-face faculty members faced a major task to convert in-person assignments to online and they have worked diligently to give you the best learning experience possible. I ask that you continue to be patient with them as we work out any snags.

COVID-19 & Wellness Information

Resources: We realize this is a stressful time for everyone and hope the resources below are helpful:
