About

CavsConnect is the student news site of Coral Gables Senior High School and is part of the Communication Arts, Film, and Digital Media (CAF&DM) Academy. Founded during the 2012-2013 school year, CavsConnect strives to bring relevant news and information to our students, faculty, staff, and community.

The journey in creating a student news site was a long one; filled with triumphs, setbacks and eventually success. During the 2012-2013 school year, after just seven months of being up and running, CavsConnect was rated All Florida, a title we have continued to receive since then. Additionally, we have received awards including Honorable Mention in News Writing at the NSPA 2014 Conference. Within our FSPA district, we have received First Place in Student Life Photography and Second Place in both Sports and Nature Photography. For the first time ever, our staff was also awarded First Place for a Video Sketch Spring 2015 Quick Turn Competition with FSPA. The goal of CavsConnect is to bring together and serve as resource for students, faculty, and the Coral Gables community.

We would never have gotten our site running so efficiently and seamlessly without the help of Tom & Jason at School Newspapers Online. They have been instrumental in allowing our student media to shine by handling all the nitty gritty technical aspects of web design and content management. We thank Tom & Jason for their skill, patience, and wonderful service.

We offer a variety of affordable advertising opportunities for businesses, large and small, which help us to fund our program. Contact us to find out more about rates and options.
