Palm Beach County students can begin Tuesday applying for Choice and Career showcase programs for next school year.

The school district offers more than 300 programs for students to focus on topics they are interested in learning about, including arts, finance, JROTC, culinary, construction and much more.

Students can begin filling out applications Tuesday.

Some programs, like the arts, may require auditions and have specific deadlines.

Many of the schools still have open houses scheduled that will allow students to learn more about the programs.

Palm Beach County Schools Superintendent Dr. Robert Avossa said this is a great opportunity for students.

"It's always important that students have the opportunity to study things they are interested in.  We know they do better in school if it's connected to something the are passionate about," said Avossa.

Applications are due Dec. 2 for arts programs and Jan. 27 for all others.
