Center for Information Technology

The Center for Information Technology offers opportunities for students to study a wide range of information technology programs covering three main areas: mathematics and computer programming, graphics and multimedia, and hardware and networking. An extensive advanced placement (AP) program is available. 

Programs leading to professional and general certification are offered. These certificate programs include computer graphics, multimedia, computer repair, computer programming, and networking. Students need at least two years in upper level classes to prepare for the advanced graphics, network, and programming certifications.

To participate in the program, students must be enrolled in at least one iT core class and must complete a sequence of iT classes in grades nine through 12. All students in this program may choose from an extensive list of Advanced Placement core courses.

Transportation Services

Students living within the boundaries of the specialty program school may ride their regular bus to school.

Transportation services for students who reside outside the boundaries of the specialty program school will be provided via a network of express bus stops. Transportation requests, including the selection of a specific express stop, must be returned to the school with the specialty program application.

The transportation request process must be repeated for every year the student is enrolled in the specialty program. Parents have the responsibility to provide transportation to and from express bus stops.
