The Academy of Information Technology and Computer Science was established in the fall of 2018 . The Academy follows the nationally recognized curriculum provided by “Project Lead the Way”. Students enrolled in the academy will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to potentially pursue a career in the field of Information Technology and/or Computer Science. The Academy will empower students in grades 9-12 to become creators, instead of merely consumers, of the technology all around them.
The program’s interdisciplinary courses will engage students in compelling, real-world challenges. As students work together to design solutions, they will learn computational thinking – not just how to code – and become better thinkers and communicators. Students will take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
Courses offered will study Computer Science, Computer Programming and Computer Security. Students enrolled in the program may earn advanced standing for admissions at selective colleges and universities around the country for completing the program through partnership with the “Project Lead the Way” curriculum.
