Gray’s Creek High School
Gray’s Creek High School is located in the southwestern corner of Cumberland County. Many say that it is a true community school serving the students of this growing rural area. The student population is just over 1200 students in grades 9-12, they are large enough to provide a wide range of opportunities for students while also maintaining a smaller, more personal climate where students can be seen as individuals. One of the programs offered at Gray’s Creek is The Academy of Information Technology (AOIT).
The AOIT is a small learning environment that introduces students to the increasing career opportunities in today's digital workforce while equipping them with the personal, analytical, and 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.
Students will be selected for the Academy of Information Technology based on the following criteria:
· Completed Application
· Academic record
o 8th Grade provide recent report card
o 9th Grade provide transcript
· Teacher recommendations
· Interview by the Program Director
