Academic Institutes


Welcome to a new era of secondary education in Mississippi!​​​​​​​

In 2010, Gulfport High School transformed into the first public high school in the state to introduce The Academic Institutes. This innovative structure blends a rigorous academic curriculum with career-focused, project-based learning, preparing students for success in higher education or the workforce.

The Academic Institutes are organized around the 16 National Career Clusters, reflecting a national effort to equip future generations to thrive in our global economy.

In 2017, Gulfport High School completed a $40+ million renovation of its Academic, Arts, and Athletic facilities. These state-of-the-art buildings offer students an unparalleled combination of services and curriculum, setting a new standard for high schools in Mississippi.
