However, those not intending to pursue further formal education will benefit greatly from the knowledge and logical thought processes that result from taking some or all of the courses provided in the curriculum.

Our goal is to prepare students enrolled in the Information Technology and Business Pathway to encompass the idea of the job opportunities available for networking professionals in a 21st century global economy. Students will develop practical experience skills such as problem solving, collaboration, and critical thinking. Our curriculum is designed to help students stand out in the job market and demonstrate their skills and competencies to employers through globally recognized certifications.  These classes will be designed as a theme-based high school curriculum in which students stay with a group of teachers over integrated curriculum cycles to create a supportive learning environment. Partnerships and mentor programs with local businesses and employers will provide connections between school and work.
