As a public charter school of choice, Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate High School is open to students in the Tampa Bay Area. With an honors level core curriculum of classes and opportunity for advanced course work through Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment, we encourage all prospective students to attend a Prospective Student Open House to learn more about the school’s mission, vision, academic program, extracurricular program, athletics, college and career readiness preparation, and our history of success.


With growing interest in the school, each year we have a growing number of student applications. When the number of student applications exceeds the number of available seats, we hold an open, public lottery. Our maximum capacity is 150 students per grade level for grades 9-12 with an overall enrollment of 600 students.
