Jacksonville and Local Areas  

Jacksonville sets the stage for our students to flourish in one of the nation's most renowned metropolitan cities in Northeast Florida. Students can experience the richness of Jacksonville's culture through museums, concerts, vast miles of beaches and waterways, and the largest urban park system in the United States.
