Mission Statement:Collier High School/ Middle School offers a departmentalized academic program with a strong counseling component for those adolescents whose behavioral and academic needs cannot be met within the public school. Collier's comprehensive curriculum allows students to prepare for admission into four-year colleges, community colleges, and technical/vocational schools, as well as full-time employment. Individual and group counseling encourages and supports social/emotional growth for all students. Clubs, activities, and trips round out the educational program and give students extracurricular opportunities similar to those offered in public schools.
