• Partnerships and Advisory Board


    On behalf of the Academy of Information Technology at Fuquay-Varina  High School, I invite you to serve as a member of our Business Advisory Board.  The academy is a smaller learning community within our comprehensive high school.  The program integrates core academic instruction with information technology electives and is designed to expose students to many disciplines of IT. 

    Our academy relies on a high level of support and direction from the advisory board.  The advisory board provides a critical bridge between school and the workplace.  The advisory board serves to create a connection between a student’s classroom experience and one’s preparedness for college, career and citizenship.   

    As an Advisory Board member, you can directly affect the academy by:

    • Providing academy teachers with industry standards and practices to ensure classroom instruction is current 

    • Assist students with classroom projects

    • Providing academy students with a sequence of work-based learning experiences, including short-term work experiences and internships

    • Serving as an advocate for the academy

    If you would be interested in serving on the Information Technology Academy Business Advisory Board at Fuquay-Varina High-School, please reach out to me for further information.
