New Collier County High School Grand Opening




The Collier County School District is inaugurating an innovative new high school on Monday.

The project will extend the Livingston Road Veterans Memorial Boulevard directly to the unnamed school, currently called “GGG” until it is officially named. By the time the school opens in August 2023, it will be 19 years since the CCSD opened a new high school.

The school will include a brand new performing arts center, where students can participate in theater, cheerleading exercises and other activities, or it can be used as a professional learning center. It will also have a Genius Bar, offering face-to-face technical support from Apple, to help resolve any technical issues that students might encounter.

Chad Oliver, executive director of communications and community engagement for the CCSD, says the impact this school will have on future generations is difficult to understand.

“When we say ‘state of the art’ it means this campus incorporates the latest ideas in education, to foster 21st century learning; all the latest technologies and features that truly make this campus a vibrant place to prepare students not only for careers today, but also tomorrow, ”said Oliver.

The school is designed and built to relieve enrollment in Collier County at the high school level and will emphasize hands-on learning, with five career academies and an environmental theme woven throughout the campus to showcase the beauty natural region. The CCSD says that all the money and effort put into building this school will greatly reward the district in the years to come.

“When you think of the impact, we are talking about the generations that will be affected, to the extent that we can benefit from this campus for decades to come,” Oliver said.

Once completed, the school should be able to accommodate more than 1,800 students.
