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."
