The Only NAF Hospitality and Tourism Academy in Osceola County


Started in 2015, the OHS Hospitality Academy was designed to offer a clear and precise pathway to the many careers in the global Hospitality industry. In order to facilitate the employability and critical thinking skills necessary to enter the workforce, we became members of the National Academy Foundation (NAF).We are an open-enrollment academy that takes students based on interests, with no application necessary to enter.

 NAF provides a rigorous, industry-validated career-themed curriculum that incorporates current industry standards and practices, literacy strategies, and STEM integration. The students at OHS have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in our student-run banquet facility, learning skills such as: scheduling, banquet serving and set-up, culinary arts, and event planning.


Business people guest speak in classrooms, host college and career skills workshops, and take part in mock interviews. Students have the opportunity to tour worksites, network with, and shadow business professionals. Work-based learning culminates in an internship that allows students to apply their classroom skills and learn more about what it takes to succeed. 

We currently have some of the biggest, well-known hotel properties in the surrounding area working with us on a continuous basis to provide for the best training and experience available.

The Academy participated in Rosen Conference

The Academy gets first place at Central Florida NAF HTMP Competition

Universal Orlando Resort is now a partner of the Academy

Students visited Rosen College of Hospitality Management, ranking No. 5 best of 50 hospitality schools in the world. Students got to meet school administration, tour the campus, and take home helpful content for their future college career.

The Academy helps the victims of Hurricane Maria 

In November, the Academy competed against 9 other schools in multiple Hospitality and Tourism categories. The Academy received first place overall and first place in Guest Services and the Hospitality Event Project. 

Students extended a helping hand by hosting a clothing drive called "Share The Warmth." With Winter weather approaching, kids moving to Central Florida from Puerto Rico and the Islands are having a difficult time finding Winter clothing.  Also, many club members volunteered at Hope for Puerto Rico to also help those affected by the hurricane.  

Students had the opportunity to secret shop for Universal Orlando Resort, visiting both Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. Students focused on the Guest Services each team member was delivering to ensure they are following the resort's mission. Below are the students outside of Universal Orlando's CityWalk.
