I’m excited to be at the 2nd Annual Impact Summit in Miami. We are also officially kicking off the newly created Florida Charter School Institute!


We are so excited to announce Dr. Wendy McPherson as the first Principal of CFK Academy, the College’s new collegiate charter high school. She will start full-time with the College in July after completing a nine-year tenure as the Principal of Marathon High School in June.

Dr. McPherson began her 30-plus year career as a teacher at Sigsbee Elementary for 11 years before working as a District Administrator and English/Language Arts Coordinator. She then served as an Assistant Principal at Sugarloaf School and Marathon High School before becoming Principal of Marathon High School. Among numerous accolades, Dr. McPherson was named Principal of the Year twice by the Monroe County School District, in 2016 and 2022. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Florida State University, a master’s degree in Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction from University of West Florida, and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Southeastern University.

CFK Academy, which opens in August, is a tuition-free charter high school authorized by the Monroe County School District. With focus on college and career readiness, the curriculum centers on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and Career Technical Education (CTE). The school will use Project-Based Learning (PBL) experiences that provide students with hands-on engagement in the learning process to develop skills, knowledge, and character. CFK Academy students are encouraged to earn college credit—at no cost to the student—through the College’s Dual Enrollment program in classes conveniently located on the same campus as the high school. Motivated students can graduate with a high school diploma as well as an associate degree, certificate, and/or industry certification.

Applications for the 2023- 24 school year are available on the CFK website at CFK Academy will start with grades nine through 11 in its inaugural year and will add grade 12 in the 2024- 25 school year.
