About

AOIT at Apex High

The Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) started in 2001 and is one of 15 Career Academies in the Wake County Public School System affiliated with the National Academy Foundation (NAF). While the NAF Academy model inspires students and teachers to greater success, the Academies are bridges between corporate America and local communities. The NAF model works by bringing business people into the public schools and introducing youth to the world of business. Through the Academies, educators and business people are partners for investing in and developing America’s youth.

AOIT provides students with a rigorous academic curriculum, while exposing them to the varied career paths and opportunities available in the information technology industry. Students engage in a rigorous, project-based learning curriculum focused on providing transferable skills and exposure to the dynamic IT field.

May of 2005 saw the successful graduation of 58 students from that first class. Over 90% of these students have continued their education at post-secondary institutions.

The AHS AOIT program has continued to grow in size and accomplishments over the last ten years, achieving notable status in Wake County, our local community, and nationally. In 2013, our AOIT program was the number one NAF academy in the nation!


The NAF Model

naf logo blueApex High School’s Academy of Information Technology is affiliated with the National Academy Foundation (NAF). While the NAF Academy model inspires students and teachers to greater success, the Academies are bridges between corporate America and local communities. The NAF model works by bringing business people into the public schools and introducing youth to the world of business. Through the Academies, educators and business people are partners for investing in and developing America’s youth.

The NAF Method: NAF Academies operate either within existing public high schools or as separate high schools. Organized as small learning communities, NAF students remain together throughout their high school years with a core group of specially trained teachers. The NAF model provides an environment for these teachers to develop interdisciplinary activities that make learning relevant and capture the interest of students. Through real-world, hands-on experiences, each Academy exposes its students for a career in a specific industry: finance, hospitality & tourism, engineering, health sciences, and information technology. Specialized NAF courses are jointly designed by educators and industry specialists to supplement and enrich the traditional school curriculum. Rigorous academic learning is combined with real world work experience and career training that are too often lacking for most of today’s high school graduates, but critical for doing well in college and in careers. The NAF model works by bringing business people into the public schools and inviting young people from all communities into a culture of success.

Students complete paid internships, during which time they receive hands-on exposure, professional supervision, and practical work experience. This allows students to begin the process of building a resume while “trying on” their future professional roles. Students are selected for these industry-specific placements on the basis of interviews and their fulfillment of coursework requirements.
