Since 2014, SIM-RTP and the Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) at Apex High School have partnered to put technology in the hands of students and encourage education, inspire careers, and mentor our future technology leaders. We are continuing to expand our partnership into student internships and speaker engagements in the upcoming year.
Students enter the 4-year program as high school freshman while also participating in standard grade curriculum. The technology program focuses on two main areas of study: Applications and Web Development (Apps), and Computer Programming. 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.
