As well as access to flight training the school said it has a rich history of academic excellence spanning more than 50 years and has achieved a 100% college acceptance rate since 1978. 

Of the 67 seniors currently in the class of 2014, this year’s senior class has been awarded scholarships in excess of $2million and received acceptances to Top 100 schools throughout the US. Students can also apply to become certified to fly an aircraft. FAA offers a comprehensive flight-training programme for students at nearby Melbourne International Airport.
