STEAM Academy

In collaboration with school leadership and Polk Virtual School, the Department of Academic Rigor has established twenty middle school STEAM Accelerated Academic Programs.


Our Mission

Daniel Jenkins Academy is a school of choice with emphasis placed on Florida Environmental Studies. We believe that it is necessary that students understand the need to preserve Florida’s resources and environment in order for the quality of life to continue in our state.

Open Enrollment Event

Daniel Jenkins Academy will be having an Open Enrollment Event on November 18th. During this time, prospective students will be able to take a guided tour of the school, as well as see some of the wonderful opportunities that we offer at Daniel Jenkins. The event begins at 5:30 and ends at 7:30. Tours will be leaving every 10 minutes, from the school cafeteria. In order to ensure that everyone is able to get a complete tour of the campus, our last tour will be leaving at 6:50. At the end of the evening our computer labs will be available for parents wishing to enroll their child. Open enrollment for Magnet and Schools of Choice begins on November 18, 2014 and ends on January 9, 2015.

Jaguars On-Line is now available!
