The Seacoast Collegiate High School at Northwest Florida State College in Santa Rosa will house classrooms for high school and college courses as well as a shared-use space for workforce development.

Northwest Florida State College and Seacoast Collegiate High School, both in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., and The Seaside School Foundation are partnering to build an educational facility at the college’s South Walton Center.

The Destin Log reports that the new facility, named Seacoast Collegiate High School at Northwest Florida State College, will provide a dual-enrollment educational center housing Seacoast and Northwest Florida  State classrooms, as well as a shared-use space for workforce development, continuing education and other workforce preparedness instruction.

The college is providing 5 acres of land on which The Seaside School, Inc. will build a facility. The agreement states that the Seaside School Foundation will finance the project in exchange for a property lease, Seacoast Collegiate High School says in a news release. 

This partnership agreement creates a permanent home for Seacoast Collegiate High School at the Northwest Florida State College South Walton campus and develops a high school dual enrollment center serving students in Walton County and the surrounding areas. The new facility will also include an “accelerator," which will offer training, mentoring, and collaboration to new area businesses and entrepreneurs.

Situated on both the South Walton campus and the Niceville campus of Northwest Florida State College, The Seaside School, Inc.’s Seacoast Collegiate High School serves 196 students grades 9 through 12, offering students the ability to graduate high school with an associate college degree. The Seaside School, Inc. is a public charter school in the Walton County (Fla.)  school district.
