The Academy of Information Technology at Carencro High School has a proven track record of excellence in educating young people in modern technology and in preparing them for the 21st Century workforce. Each year Academy students graduate with meaningful, real-world IT job experience, and the opportunity for a technical endorsement on their diplomas, industry-based certifications, and multiple college credits through dual enrollment taking technology classes. Upon completion of a paid internship and graduation from the program, the students matriculate into the work force as skilled employees or advance into higher education.

Through the Internship Program, local businesses partner with the Academy to expose the students to real-world work force practices through applied learning experiences. The internship can be with firms specializing in IT, an IT department in non-IT companies, or companies/organizations needing IT assistance. 

These students relate their classroom lessons to the work place and develop important professional relationships that can be of lasting value for the future. Each student is matched, based on interest and strengths with businesses intern provider's job description.
