Junior High Choice Options
The school district of Clay County currently offers the following choice options at the Junior High School level.
Green Cove Springs Junior High, Lakeside Junior High, and Oakleaf Junior High Schools provide a Beginning Advanced International Certificate of Education (Pre-AICE) program. Students in Pre-AICE will receive extended learning opportunities critical for success in accelerated high school courses, college preparation, and future employment. The Pre-AICE program is designed for students who desire to participate in the AICE program at Fleming Island or Oakleaf High Schools, but also prepares students for AP and IB rigor as well. The AICE program is created for academically talented and motivated students who are on an accelerated college pathway.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) is Lake Asbury Junior High School’s map to a successful academic experience for all of its students. Learning in a STEAM environment, coupled with an innovative Project-Based Learning (PBL) approach and a strong foundation in literacy, sets the stage for students to solve real-world problems while reaching their highest academic potential. Students are taught with an interdisciplinary approach with an emphasis on the design thinking process and problem solving leading to the application. This allows LAJH students to develop skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
