    Final Eligibility Criteria: Part 3 - Continue to Meet Admissions Criteria

    The offer of admission is contingent upon students maintaining academic, attendance, and behavioral qualifications through the beginning of the Fall term in August. If changes occur to the information used to process an application (behavior/discipline, attendance, unweighted CUM GPA) between the time of application and the beginning of the Fall term, it is the student's responsibility to immediately notify College Academy in writing. Submit written notification to the CA Admissions Coordinator at lynde.voet@browardschools.com . Failure to immediately disclose this information may result in College Academy rescinding the offer of admission. 

    Final Transcripts must reflect Geometry, World History, HOPE or HS PE/Fitness Lifestyle Design (equivalent) prior to fall admissions. Students must complete any missing required course work (such as FLVS/BVS) prior to fall admissions.
