Pineapple Cove Classical Academy's High School Program

The journey of a high school student at Pineapple Cove Classical Academy will occur progressively, culminating in the junior and senior years.  Below, we lay out each year’s primary focus:  9th grade as the Foundational Year, 10th grade as the Learning Year, 11th grade as the Working Year, and 12th grade as the Decision Year.  The 9th and 10th grades are a time for building a strong academic foundation and beginning conversations about post-graduation plans.  The 11th and 12th grades are when students must work diligently to complete the testing, application, and decision-making process for college.  We will provide information and support to students over these four years by notifying them of testing dates, school-sponsored and regional events, and other important deadlines and by advising students on how to use their time wisely in high school and define their future goals and direction.

PCCA Palm Bay is proud to be a 2023 AP Silver Honor Roll School!

The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools that have done outstanding work to welcome more students into AP courses and support them on the path to college success.

Our school is being further recognized with the AP Access Award, which honors schools that encourage more low-income and underrepresented minority students to take AP courses. The percentage of students in at least one of these categories who took at least one AP Exam before graduation is proportional to or above your school’s student population, demonstrating a clear and effective commitment to equitable access to advanced coursework.

Research shows students who take AP courses and exams are more likely to attend college and graduate on time. And even for those who don’t earn college credit, advanced coursework provides early exposure to college-level work and contributes to a college-going school culture.

Applying for College

  • Think about your career plans and interests and decide which school is right for you.
  • Narrow your college choice list to 3 – 5 schools. Pick your dream school as well as a safety school. Always have a backup plan.
  • Start visiting college campuses.
  • Develop your résumé for employment or educational experiences. This is your chance to sell yourself!
  • Many college applications require an essay. Begin your outline and develop your essay. Remember, your English teachers and counselors are here to help.
  • Submit applications as soon as possible as competition is fierce. Ask teachers, coaches, mentors, and counselors to write a letter of recommendation. Give at least a week’s notice along with a copy of your résumé. Don’t forget to write a thank-you note!
  • Request official copies of your transcript from the guidance office to send to the colleges where you apply.
  • Keep copies of all forms, essays, and other documents that you submit.
  • Use caution with email addresses, Facebook, and other social media accounts. Email addresses/Facebook postings that are off-color or show poor taste may affect college admission decisions.
  • If you haven’t taken ACT or SAT exams sign up to do so immediately.
