    National Academy Foundation (NAF)

    NAF is a national network of education, business and community leaders who work together to ensure high school students are college, career and future ready. NAF's educational design ignites students' passion for learning and gives businesses the opportunity to shape America's future workforce by transforming the learning environment to include industry-specific curricula and work-based learning experiences, including internships.

    In Broward County, we have the most academies under one roof. We have students getting Paid Internships in their career field of interest. Students have the opportunity of getting NAF Track Certified by completing NAF Track End of year courses and projects.


    The NAF Academy of Information Technology has already obtained the Distinguished Academy status.  

    Congratulations! Currently, our NAF Academies of Health Science (AOHS) and Hospitality & Tourism (AOHT) have met the criteria for Model/Distinguished thresholds on the 2019-20 Academy Assessment. This qualifies these two academies for the final step necessary to achieve modeled/possible distinguished status. On February 21, 2020, NAF Quality Review Committed will visit the school to determine if members of the school community can demonstrate how they activate the elements of the NAF Educational Design.
