Valencia at Lake Nona High School Courses Will Start Aug. 30

Orlando, FL – On Tuesday, Aug.10, Valencia Community College will host an open house at its newest location, Valencia at Lake Nona High School. The event will take place from 4-6 p.m. at 12500 Narcoossee Road in Orlando.

Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the facility, register for fall classes and meet with faculty, staff and Valencia’s president, Sandy Shugart.

For the past year, Valencia at Lake Nona High School has already been home to the Collegiate Academy at Lake Nona High School. This unique dual-enrollment program, created in partnership with Orange County Public Schools, enables enrollees to complete anywhere from one or two college-level courses to a full Associate in Arts degree while in high school.

This fall, the Lake Nona High School location will open its doors to all Valencia students, with courses beginning Aug. 30. Twelve different courses will be offered, including biology, chemistry, math, speech, English, humanities, student success and psychology. A full listing of available courses can be found at: http://net5.valenciacc.edu/schedule/.

Occupying its own building on the Lake Nona High School campus, Valencia will now be able to save many students who live in southeast Orange County and northern Osceola County from having to make a long drive, since the new location is about halfway between Valencia’s East and Osceola Campuses.

Students who attend classes here will have access to Valencia’s services, with advising, tutoring and a student lounge available on-site.
