Pragmatic Work's School of Programming allows juniors and seniors from Middleburg High School to earn college credits by taking IT dual enrollment courses provided by St. John's River State College.

Pragmatic Works School of Programming is the essence of business partners and education working cohesively to create more successful students and better community members. 

“This partnership is what it takes to connect students’ secondary education with the real-world and give them the skills necessary to be a productive member of society,” says Chereese Stewart Career & Technical Education Director for Clay County School District.

Currently 6 students are enrolled in the program and there are hopes to duplicate the program throughout Clay County. There are already plans to expand the program to Orange Park High School in 2015.
