Are you interested in hiring an AOIT intern? Contact Ms. Robinson here.


Rising seniors (and occasionally rising juniors) in Apex High School’s AOIT program have learned the fundamentals of the Information Technology industry. Coinciding with their coursework are the soft skills that give them a personable ability to connect with other professionals. Our students are motivated, eager, and ready to put these concepts to work on-site.

All AOIT internships should have a focus on technology in the workplace. The students are creative in applying the concept, which means you can be creative, too!


Student internships must complete at least 135 hours, and include some type of compensation—which can include an hourly wage or stipend, or a good, like a computer, scholarship, or software.
