Gray’s Creek High School offers one choice program, the Academy of Information Technology. Please note this academy is open only to Gray’s Creek High School students.
The Academy of Information Technology (AOIT), a small learning environment, introduces students to the broad career opportunities in today’s digital workforce and equips them with the personal, analytical, technical and communication skills needed for these careers. AOIT opens the door to new options, so that students may make sound choices for the future.
