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."

In an attempt to give students a more exciting and fulfilling educational experience and improve the ethnic diversity of its schools, the Lafayette Parish School System offers Schools of Choice at the Elementary, Middle and High School levels.
These schools offer specialized programs or themes that give students the core curriculum required by state guidelines in the context of a subject in which the student has an interest. All students in the parish are eligible to apply for admission to any School of Choice, although they must complete the application process.
