Welcome, Newbies!


Alessio Martinez, Student Writer

On Friday, April 1st, multiple eighth-graders (and selective high schoolers) across Palm Beach County discovered that they got accepted into one of the Five Carat Choice Programs at Palm Beach Lakes! And, it wasn’t an Aprils fools joke!

To welcome and congratulate these new upcoming Freshmen in a heartfelt video were two of FCCP’s third-year academy carats, Tre’Anthony Hardy and Shia Rozier. In the video, they gave the students a big congratulations on students success in getting into a Lakes choice program: Biotechnology, Law, Medical, Early Childhood, Marine JROTC, or lastly, Fire.  All of the current Carats and academy teachers cannot wait to meet their Newbies and to welcome them into their blinging community.

The class of ’26 is coming into Palm Beach Lakes with nothing but support, especially from the incredible Choice Coordinator, Mrs. Hands, who has planned a Newbie Signing Night and Orientation for May 4 at 6:30 pm. Palm Beach Lakes and FCCP are super excited to have more Carats on campus!
