Elevating Excellence, a comprehensive college preparatory initiative of Pinellas County Schools, in partnership with the Pinellas Education Foundation is focused on assisting high-achieving, low-income, underserved students to access postsecondary education. 

Support services offered at the Gibbs High School College and Career Center helped one student graduate early and gain admission to the University of Florida.
