Committed to Empowering and Supporting Students and their Families

School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC) Choice Programs reflect the diversity of the District and are designed to attract all Palm Beach County students. Families with students entering pre–kindergarten through grade 12 have the opportunity to choose from an array of Choice and Career and Technical Education (CTE) theme–based curricula offerings at the elementary, middle, and high school levels that provide innovative and rigorous academic instruction by specially trained teachers.

Choice and In–House Programs have been established at elementary, middle and high schools to provide an opportunity for students to engage in intensive study in specific areas. Choice and In–House programs offer the opportunity for students to discover their talents and explore their interests while focusing on academic rigor. These programs provide students with a pathway to post-secondary educations and careers. Students may participate in an “in–house” program if the program is only being offered to students whose attendance boundary is zoned for the school (“In–House program”), or they may choose to attend a program that is only offered at a school outside of their regular attendance boundary (Choice program).
