Historically, the school’s focus has been toward the adult learner who desires to change careers and is looking for a school that can accommodate their special needs.
The training strategy has been and is to teach these “career changers” the basics of networking and PC repair before they go on to Microsoft and/or Cisco courses. By approaching training in this manner, The Academy ensures that the student has a solid foundation in the networking field and thus is able to apply what they are learning to an actual network.
In the time since the school’s inception, the school’s individualized approach to learning has allowed many of the students to achieve both their career goal and the goal of The Academy for its graduates – success in the IT industry.
Mission & Goal
The Academy’s mission is to provide students with first-class education, actual hands-on experience, and a unique, personalized “student experience”.
Our goal is to ensure that each student obtains the proper tools needed to begin a career in the Information Technology field.
The Student Experience
The “student experience” is a signature of The Academy. The instructors and staff strive to make each student’s time enjoyable, exciting, and rewarding. We believe that a positive environment leads to success!
Students at The Academy have the opportunity to build one-on-one relationships with instructors and staff.
From day one, Admission Representatives meet with students individually to discuss their educational goals and career objectives. Periodically, instructors provide hands-on internship opportunities and discuss effective study habits and test-taking skills.
This provides a point of reference for evaluating progress.

The Academy was originally founded with a vision of helping others to become successful working with computers. The goal was to give the students the proper training and assist them to stand out in the IT industry.
The school continues forward today with one basic principle – to help individual students get a high-quality computer education at an affordable price.
Former students who have graduated from The Academy programs have been able to leave with the skills and knowledge to be competitive in today’s job market.
