College and Career

Greetings Everyone!

My name is Bradley Hofstetter or “Mr. Hofstetter” as many students already know me. I am the College & Career Counselor for the Polk State Lakeland Collegiate High School.

I want to take the opportunity to let you know that my office is always open to you. I will be happy to provide guidance with discovering a pathway that fits you so that you can achieve your goals and ambitions. My normal office hours are 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.

I bring a solid background of working in Higher Education within the areas of Student Services, Financial Aid, and Academic Advising. Also for several years, I worked as a Science teacher here in Polk County. I received my B.A. degree in Psychology at the University of South Florida and I received my A.A. degree here at Polk State College graduating with Honors at both institutions. If you are interested in Honors Programs or Societies and how they benefit you just ask!

I look forward to working with you to achieve success here not only here at Lakeland Collegiate HS, but also at one of the top universities of your dreams!


Mr. Hofstetter
