The Collegiate High School: An Academy Approach or
First Thoughts Huh? Associates and industry certifications?? Why is this different from current DE opportunities? What was the intent of this legislation? Collegiate HS sounds like a High School on a college campus. BIG PROBLEM. Yikes we have 6 counties!!!! And we are all supposed to agree??? Really? I have to know who is teaching the courses next year! NFCC too small to add a totally separate DE program Can we make this special so it isn’t what already exists just with different packaging??? Value added beyond credits and industry certifications and free for students???
Where to start? CAPE Industry Certification list sounds like a good place to start Oh dear we don’t have very many ? Now what? Many students already have earned some of these, need to consider value added another way Basically left with certifications that relate to Business, Digital Media, and Information Technology which clearly sound more like AS/CCC realm Light bulb comes on: NFCC available industry certifications can coincide with existing CCC programs. By outlining a 30 credit hour curriculum around the Industry Certification(s) which leads to CCCs, there would be value added for both NFCC and the student. CCC: prepares student for entry into employment But then what about the students who want AA? Industry certifications and AA ?????
Specifically Which CCC’s? Adobe certifications….fit with Digital Media, we offer a several CCC’s as well as AS degree in Digital Media/Multimedia. Hmmm. This could increase enrollment in this program. Quickbooks …. maybe could fit in with Business Development & Entrepreneurship (think Shark Tank!) part of AS Business Administration MS Bundle - maybe could work in somehow with Digital Media and Business Several from Networking and Network Security realm– new Network Security CCC !!! In 30 credits may be able to complete more than one CCC in Digital Media. Business Development & Entrepreneurship CCC is 25 credits. Network Security is 30 credits. BINGO!!!! Time to consult with leads for AS Digital Media and AS Business Administration and get this curriculum outline started! Oh oh, the Network Security is set to start sequence in Spring term not Fall, and courses must be taken in a specific order..better consult.
CCC’s Galore: Post Consultation Three different CCC’s in Digital Media with credit hours leftover, maybe some Gen Ed? Business Development & Entrepreneurship CCC. In leftover hours can work in Quickbooks, MS bundle, and Adobe options Network Security CCC with multiple industry certifications with new startup in Fall to get “cohort” sequence on Fall/Spring track…will have to offer 2 nd part for first “cohort” and first part of program for second “cohort” in Fall ‘15 if enough interest. Yay!!!! Now this what I call value added! Credits, CCC’s, and certifications. And then there’s the $$$$ part. (30 * $ = $3054…a penny saved is a penny earned!)
Now for the AA Students AA not as prescribed as AS or CCC so where to start Maybe can work in completion of FL General Education core with elective options for Industry Certification preparation How do I accommodate for already earned General Education credits? Am I making this too complicated!!!! And I haven’t even gotten to the who is teaching what part yet (SERIOUSLY!) Completion of one General Education core course from each of the five buckets half way to 30 credits and the rest could be either General Education or electives that lead to industry certifications. This works because no CAPE industry certifications available through NFCC would require more than 15 credits of courses as preparation. And if a student has already completed one of the General Education core courses they can just substitute another General Education course…..THIS COULD WORK and actually resemble a somewhat defined curriculum (value added again…counselors will like this).
What Do We Call Them The NFCC Collegiate High School Program has emerged as tracks from 4 different curriculum areas: Business, AA General, Digital Media, Information Technology Let’s call them Academies (thank you President Grosskopf)! Merriam Webster defines academy as a school that provides training in a special field. The school is NFCC Collegiate HS, the training is Digital Media, Business, Information Technology (AA with electives for special training). This just might distinguish our program not only from other CHS programs elsewhere (remember we have 6 different counties that we have to reach agreement with) but from FL DE options already available to NFCC students (ie. early admission). We can even print an internal certificate stating something like John Smith has completed XXX credits in the NFCC Collegiate High School XXXXX Academy. Speaking of packaging. And if we code students in the event that at some point there be an accountability report required we are ready to go…HA CHA CHA!
Now on to the details Since for many courses do not know who specifically will be teaching until term class schedule made (and subject to change), just list all possible faculty with disclaimers if needed. Same goes for method of delivery, list options with disclaimer about video conferencing where equipment available based on demand Consult with appropriate faculty for courses that prepare students for CAPE industry certification How to organize? This is a lot of information (thank you FL legislature!) so tables seem the way to go. Tables will need to minimally include: NFCC course number and title, HS equivalency (thank goodness I created that abbreviated NFCC table), the programs within respective academy that courses count towards, whether course is a preparation for an industry certification, CAPE certification with code, instructors, methods of delivery
Collegiate High School Information Technology Academy Curriculum Refer to table Appendix A for Academy I. College Credit Certificate Program The 30 credit hours that comprise the curriculum for this online program meet the requirements for the CCC Network Security. It is designed to equip career-seeking students with an advanced understanding of various networks and the information security issues faced by business and industry worldwide. Credits may articulate to an AS Network Systems Technology which is offered at some FCS institutions. Credits may also count toward AA degree as electives and may meet prerequisites for a 4 year degree in a related Information Technology program. The courses will offered as a schedule to meet the required sequencing to prepare students for the related industry certifications. Second table includes courses for certification preparation Note how any related information regarding instruction is stated prior to third table
Delivery Method and Instructors All courses will be offered as online delivery. All courses will be taught by industry certified instructors with more specialized courses such as Ethical Hacker I taught by John Sirmon and CCNA/CCNA Security courses taught by an adjunct.

Collegiate High School Digital Media Academy Curriculum Note: Table one similar to that for Information Technology Academy but note that there are multiple NFCC programs toward which credits may count and delivery and instructor included. All on this table are courses required for completion of CCC’s Due to some courses common to three of our available CCC’s it was possible to outline a curriculum that would allow for completion of multiple CCC’s and not reach 30 credit hours. Consideration of AS Digital Media/Mulitmedia professional core and General Education was given in choice of courses. As well by adding GRA 2140C to recommended students could earn an additional certification Note that the recommended General education courses are from FL Gen Ed Core
College Degree or Certificates for which Credits are Earned If student completes all courses (21 credit hours) listed in the first table they will have met requirements for three different College Credit Certificates which are tied to the AS Digital Media/Multimedia. The specialization for those three CCCs are Authoring, Production, Web Production. These short –term certificates are designed to equip students with a skill set for immediate employment. All courses in these three certificates are required courses for completion of the AS Digital Media/Multimedia. Courses specific to the individual College Credit Certificates described may be found in the NFCC College Catalog. The courses listed on the second table are recommended options beyond the 21 credits that will meet CCC requirements. These courses are also part of the AS Digital Media/Multimedia program as either as professional core or general education course. Professional core courses may be transferrable to BAS Digital Media/Multimedia. General Education Courses recommended that will meet General Education Core Option state requirement for Humanities and for Mathematics as defined in F.A.C. 6A Digital Media Academy

Course Delivery Method and Instructors Listed course delivery method(s) are based on how courses have been delivered in previous semesters. Traditional (face to face) delivery courses would meet at NFCC or may be delivered via video conferenced based on interest and availability of technology for delivery. Where multiple delivery methods are listed not all are available every term that course is offered FINALLY! I actually know who the instructor will be. Note in table below the above introduction that instructors and method of delivery are known. But introduction provides for additional possibility of video conferenced delivery. Business Academy
AA General Academy Curriculum First table listed General Education State Core Options for NFCC for the respective Gen Ed buckets. Note the * and ** statements below table re EOC preparation. Additional Information Regarding General Education Choices Note that some of the General Education Courses may have prerequisite or co requisite course requirements. Collegiate High School AA General track students must take or have previously completed one General Education Core course from each of the five General Education areas as listed above. Note that courses listed are based on those in 2014 College Catalog and additional Core courses may be added to the NFCC 2015 College Catalog. Choice of Mathematics General Core Course Option should be based on students’ intended meta-major or major. Refer to F.A.C. 6A Meta-Major Academic Pathways for defined academic pathways for English and Mathematics for various meta-majors.. Effective academic year all FTIC students must meet General Education Core requirement. Refer to F.A.C. 6A General Education Core Course Options. For a student who has previously completed General Education Core course options for the five areas either another General Education or elective course may be substituted as part of the AA General Academy curriculum. Students should make informed choices based on their educational objective.
Elective courses options listed in second table are for the most part the courses that would prepare students for CAPE Industry Certifications. The courses related to specific certification are listed in the third table. General Information Regarding Electives Note that some of the listed recommended electives may have prerequisite or co- requisite course requirements. Effective , all FTIC students will be required to meet a foreign language competency requirement at the level of Elementary II for completion of an Associate of Arts degree. This can be met by completing 2 high school credits in the same foreign language take consecutively either taken as a high school course or as college credit.. Other elective choices may be substituted. In selecting electives consideration should be given to intended degree and major to help with required common course prerequisites and transfer of credit. Note how delivery method and instructors was addressed in fourth table and introductory statement above that table. It was also noted whether instructor was FT or PT. AA General
Other Contract Details Limited to 12 th graders. RATIONALE: Intent of the legislation. Higher probability that student will have completed HS subject area credits. Must be post secondary ready in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics to be a participant. Students must maintain a minimum number of hours (6) to be considered a CHS participant. RATIONALE: Remember only have to allow for 30 credits. Students do not have to enroll in 30 credits or even be early admission. But the more credits the more value added. All courses delivered by NFCC faculty on a paid contract. RATIONALE: Collegiate High School. This one may ruffle a few feathers. All face to face courses and hybrids will be held at NFCC. All video conferenced delivery from NFCC.
