    Gray's Creek High School offers one choice program, the Academy of Information Technology. Please note this academy is open only to Gray's Creek High School students

    The Academy of Information Technology (AOIT), a small learning environment, introduces students to the broad career opportunities in today’s digital workforce and equips them with the personal, analytical, technical, and communication skills needed for these careers. AOIT opens the door to new options, so that students may make sound choices for the future.

    Affiliated with and administered by the National Academy Foundation (NAF), based in New York City, this program is designed to facilitate the transition from high school to more advanced training and eventually a career in the information technology industry.


    The Academy of Information Technology’s mission is to introduce high school students to the broad career opportunities in the information technology industry by providing a program of study in information systems, software installation and maintenance, and networking, to equip them with skills necessary to compete in a career field.

    Our vision is to provide highly skilled graduates with a strong foundation in information technology.
