Welcome to The Schools of McKeel Academy! In 1998, we joined the charter school movement and opened the first secondary conversion charter school in Florida through a contract with the Polk County School Board. We now have three campuses in Lakeland, Florida and in 2011 were recognized by the Florida Department of Education as a high performing charter school system.


    The McKeel IBIS Project, Innovative Best Instructional Strategies, provides a fun opportunity for teachers to collaborate together to learn new, engaging ideas proven to increase technology integration and literacy while increasing student performance. Registration is open for our next workshops.
