The Osceola School Board is committed to the safety and security of all students, staff, and visitors. The Osceola School District has detailed comprehensive safety and emergency plans for every site, and all schools regularly conduct various drills, such as fire drills, severe weather drills, and intruder drills, to prepare students for an emergency.
The Osceola School District is committed to engaging all stakeholders in the education of our children. Only when we build strong relationships with our staff, students, families and community members can we best meet the needs of each and every student.
In order to help incoming middle and high school students and parents become familiar with their new schools for next year, Osceola County's secondary schools will host Student Orientation Nights. Click to learn more!
The Osceola County School Board has named Terry Castillo as Board Chairwoman and Julius Melendez as Board Vice-Chairman, effective November 16, 2021.
NeoCity Academy is a true partnership between the School District of Osceola County and our NeoCity Community. Together, we will provide an unmatched educational experience for students as we prepare them to be contributing 21st Century citizens. We do this through building a Culture of No Excuses - where we hold one another accountable to achieve the goals that we have set forth for the education of our students.
This year will be unprecedented as we face schooling students in a global pandemic. Now, more than ever, we need to lean on one another to support the teaching, learning and social-emotional needs of our students. The COVID-19 Pandemic has brought to light the need for schools like NeoCity Academy. The need for students to engage in real-world problem-solving so that they are able to tackle the complex problems that we face in an ever-changing world.
I want to acknowledge the choice you have made to help us build a school that we believe offers a unique, transformative and powerful education for Osceola County students.
The families of NeoCity Academy come from all over our county and from many different schools. At NeoCity Academy we embark on a journey to bring together this diverse group of students, families, and teachers to become one of the strongest communities of learners in the country.

SCHOOL SAFETY - PRIORITY # 1
The safety of our school community is the number one priority at NeoCity Academy. Physical safety, mental health safety, and a safe culture inclusive of all students and staff has been our number one goal. Our NeoCity families, students and staff are what make this an incredible culture to teach and learn in.
Our School Safety Team is led by Deputy Robert Harlan, of the Osceola County Sheriff's Department. Deputy Harlan has served Osceola for over 15 years, and has served as a School Resource Officer for 8 years. Deputy Harlan also serves in the capacity of sniper on the Osceola County Sheriff's Office Emergency Response Team. We are happy to have Deputy Harlan as a part of our NeoCity family.

Our Mission + Vision
At NeoCity Academy, an inquiry-driven, project-based STEM Choice Program, we develop students who believe the world can be a better place and that they can be the ones to make it happen.
NeoCity Academy was founded under the belief that a school where students own their learning is fundamentally more impactful than one where they do not. NeoCity Academy is actively engaging students in inquiry-driven, project-based learning to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of graduating students ready to change the world.
