The goal of the course is for every student to graduate from Academy of Innovative Technology High School as a Certiport-certified HTML5 Application Developer and an Advanced Regents diploma with a CTE endorsement. Upon completion of the course, they will have developed an industry-grade capstone project and will be ready to apply for jobs.
9th Grade (Freshman year)
Our program sequence begins with a 30-day introductory course designed to give new high school students a preview of what to expect if they commit to the Web pathway in their 10th grade year. Our 30-day course focuses on the fundamentals of creating a website, and by the end of the course, students will have created their own first website from scratch.
10th grade (Sophomore year)
In the 10th grade, students officially commence their first full year in the Web pathway. Through partnership with our longstanding partner CodeNation, students take the CodeNation Introduction to Web Development curriculum. This curriculum is supported by volunteers from popular tech companies that come in to support students as they learn to code. By the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of the coding languages involved in website development, and will be able to build an interactive website.
11th grade (Junior year)
12th grade (Senior year)
Our program sequence concludes in the final year of high school. After becoming certified, students work throughout their senior year on an industry-grade capstone project co-taught by two instructors. This project is presented to a panel of industry professionals, and school faculty.
