Newpoint Tampa High School is in the Hillsborough County School District and is focused on college preparatory…More studies. What makes the school unique is that it provides curriculum 100 percent online.
Students take classes at the Greater Brandon facility in Valrico but all materials and instruction are online. A teacher certified in the subject matter is on hand to coach and guide students through the curriculum and to answer questions when they arrive to class.
The school is for self-starters and mirrors the college experience in that learning is through self-discovery and self-directed studies. A Newpoint High is scheduled to open in Pinellas County for the 2011-12 school year and in Sarasota a year after that.
