Welcome To Atlantic High School, Home of the Sharks! 

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Atlantic High School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year!  Atlantic High School can be found in beautiful Port Orange, Florida.  Our school is the School of Opportunity and boasts a wide variety of learning options for every student. With 3 career academies, numerous college/career prep programs, Dual Enrollment courses from Daytona State College, Industry Certifications, and Advanced Placement classes, our students learn what it takes to be successful at the next level! 

Atlantic High School has three career academies: Academy of Law and Government (ALAG); the Technology, Engineering, Science, and Aeronautics (TESA); and the Aquaculture, Environmental, and Marine Science (AEMS). Our career academies offer robust and in-depth learning experiences designed to prepare students for college and beyond.  Academies offer students a jump start into their respected career fields by offering internships, hand-on training, and industry certifications.

Our college/career pathways are extremely diverse as well!  Students can explore careers in public service, entertainment, science, and technology.  These pathways allow students to develop problem-solving and collaboration skills by incorporating project-based learning experiences in their exploration of career fields such as education, marketing, culinary arts, digital video/audio, performing arts, and game & simulation.

In addition to the world class career academies and career programs available at AHS, we also offer numerous opportunities to belong, learn, and grow. Choose from a full menu of clubs and sports. Clubs and sports are a great way to get connected to your school, make new friends, learn about leadership, and build your resume. Students, don’t sit on the sidelines! We want you to be engaged and involved in your high school experience. The extracurricular programs at Atlantic provide opportunities for ALL students to challenge themselves beyond the classroom.

I am looking forward to an amazing school year! Go Sharks! #finsWAYup
