The Hillsborough County School Board approved Plato Academy to open in northwestern Hillsborough County. It will be the 9th Plato Academy School and is scheduled to open in August of 2016. Historically, there has been a strong demand from families living in Hillsborough County to attend Plato Academy Schools in Pinellas County. Demand is strongest from within the areas of the county closest to Pinellas, including Town and Country, Westchase, and Keystone with a combined 264 applications from families countywide for our schools already operating in Pinellas County.
“For years now, many parents and community members who reside in Hillsborough County have asked us to build a Plato Academy for them,” said Steve Christopoulos. We are working diligently to give them a school that is just as great as all of our schools in Pinellas.”
Hillsborough County is the 3rd largest school district in the state and the 8th largest in the nation.
