The Curriculum combines the formal performance-based Florida Standards and informal content and process utilized in the Core Curriculum Model which together will enable our students to gain knowledge and understanding, develop skills, and alter attitudes, appreciation and values under the guidance of a select, highly skilled teaching staff.

Educational Philosophy

Keys Gate Charter High School has as its core philosophy the belief that all children can develop as intellectual learners, function as good citizens, learn as individuals in our society and develop as actual or potential workers in our community. Students can be academically successful, and all subjects can work as potential contributors to their intellectual development.

We value the traditional classroom teacher and the role of the family and its impact on our students, and we place strong emphasis on the value of new information and technologies to enhance the development of the individual strengths of each of our students. We place strong emphasis on identifying our student’s learning styles and developing strategies that enable these students to succeed.

We believe in the development of good morals and useful skills in preparing functioning citizens. Keys Gate Charter High School creates a greater sense of community ownership with the parents due to its location at the workplace, its contractual agreements for parent involvement and because of the intense educational program that focuses on developing effective, functioning human beings.

We believe the synergy of the low teacher-pupil ratio, the goal oriented curriculum and the preparation and teaching experience of the carefully selected staff provides a high level of consistency between our mission and our educational program.

Virtual Courses


We wanted to provide you with information regarding the availability and process for students to take virtual courses at our school. As a school of choice, we understand how important it is for us to provide a variety of curriculum and instructional options for our students.  As such, we have integrated our own virtual courses into our curriculum that will be monitored and supported at our school center, by our own teachers.  These “on-site” virtual courses are all state approved and will provide our students with multiple course options and direct support and monitoring by our teachers. All virtual courses are fully and completely part of our school’s educational program.

A complete list of virtual courses that we offer is available in the main office.  These virtual courses will become part of our curriculum and instructional offerings for our students and families who have selected us as a school of choice.   Since each course, traditional and virtual alike, are uniquely incorporated into our proven curriculum, virtual options are limited to our extensive list of courses.  If you have any questions regarding virtual course offerings, you may contact us by calling the school.

We thank you for choosing us as your school of choice, and look forward to an incredible school year!
