    Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

Still time to apply for school

By Times Staff Writer
Published February 8, 2006

Students interested in attending St. Petersburg Collegiate High School have one more chance to pick up an application that will make them eligible to apply to the program.

School personnel will be available from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 15 in the music center of the Gibbs campus, 6605 Fifth Ave. N. This is the last in a series of meetings to introduce current ninth-, 10th- and 11th-graders to SPCHS, a cooperative venture between the school district and St. Petersburg College.

Students considering St. Petersburg Collegiate High, which allows highly motivated students to earn a standard diploma and an associate's degree simultaneously, must be residents of Pinellas County. Tenth-graders entering the precollegiate program should have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher and passing scores on the eighth-grade Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.

Incoming 11th-graders must have a minimum 3.0 unweighted high school grade point average.

Students interested in applying must submit an application by March 1. Those selected for the program will be notified by March 15, before the start of the district's choice attendance area application period, which begins March 21.

Families will receive more information about the application and acceptance process at the meetings. See for details.
