CHOICE is a unique program for high school students. CHOICE provides students with nationally recognized industry certifications and a solid foundation whether they plan to enter the workforce immediately after high school or continue their education at a career center, community college, or university. It lets students earn high school credit, college credit, and nationally-recognized industry certification – all at the same time.

Having the faculty possess the national industry certifications attached to the courses they teach establishes greater credibility for them.  When educators have in-depth knowledge of the material and first-hand experience of the exams, they can do a more effective job of training their students with test-taking techniques.

CHOICE gives students a head start on college and careers in high-skill, high-wage and high-demand occupations organized in many different career clusters including programs in Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources; Architecture & Construction; Arts, A/V Technology & Communications; Business, Management & Administration; Education & Training; Health Science; Hospitality & Tourism; Human Services; Information Technology; Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security; Manufacturing; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM); and Transportation, Distribution & Logistics.

The students of Okaloosa County have more educational options than ever before!
