Academy of Information Technology at Carencro High
Academy Affiliation and Vision
The Academy of Information Technology at Carencro High School is an affiliate of NAF (formerly known as National Academy Foundation), through which the AOIT receives curricular, professional development and program support, regional/national connections and the collective experiences of AOIT programs throughout the nation. The AOIT will introduce students to the opportunities in the Information Technology industry and will equip them with the skills they need to seek higher education and/or enter the digital workforce.
The AOIT is guided by an Advisory Board, composed of local IT professionals, an AOIT parent, student and alumnus; and representatives of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, South Louisiana Community College, Academy of Interactive Entertainment, and the Lafayette Parish School System. This and other community partnerships are geared toward providing real-life experiences and keeping the Academy program grounded in the reality of the IT field.
What Students are Saying...
"Being in the Academy of Information Technology for the past four years has given me a great appreciation for the Schools of Choice program. I enjoy all the the technology assets we've had access to and the lasting relationships I've built with other AOIT students. Working closely with my friends on hands-on projects in a tight knit environment has really allowed me to get the full high school experience as well as prep for college and real-world situations. Plus, the paid internship during the summer of my junior year was an awesome experience that helped me understand how technology is used outside our personal lives, something I wouldn't have had otherwise."
