Kid's Community College® Southeast County (KCC-SE), an IB candidate applicant school, was approved by the School District in December, adding a fifth Kid's Community College® campus in Riverview and will follow the International Baccalaureate PYP programme of study, seeking IB Organization authorization upon its date of eligibility.
Our current campus is located at 6528 US Highway 301 South in Riverview, near the corner of Krycul and 301 South. A new state-of-the-art 29,000sf facility is currently being constructed and we are expected to move to our new location at 11519 McMullen Road in Riverview in August 2013.
IB programmes promote the education of the whole person, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth through all domains of knowledge. By focusing on the dynamic combination of knowledge, skills, independent critical and creative thought and international-mindedness, the IB espouses the principle of educating the whole person for a life of active, responsible citizenship. At the time of our charter school approval, Hillsborough County Schools only offers two IB PYP schools and there are only a total of 24 IB PYP programmes in the entire state. KCC-SE will be open to all elementary school learners in Hillsborough County whose families embrace a global, academically rigorous, and internationally minded curriculum. The campus will focus on the whole child and strive to guide students in a manner that will enable them to become life-long learners and internationally minded citizens. By the end of the program, PYP students will exemplify all of the attributes of the PYP Learner Profile. Part of being an IB student means embracing the IB philosophy - students who are:

Open enrollment for the campus is ongoing and highly competitive. Parents interested in enrolling are encouraged to apply early by REGISTERING NOW.
