Academy Overview:

Business and Information Technology

The Business and Information Technology (BIT) Academy at Baker High School is designed so that the student can emphasize courses that he or she needs in order to succeed in college and careers in the Business and IT fields. Two pathways, Business and IT, are offered. These pathways stress pursuit of credentials and real-world experience for students. Courses such as Multimedia Design, Networking, and Programming (app development for Android and AP Computer Science) are directly linked to the business and technology world. The BIT Academy prepares students for business and careers such as accounting, advertising and sales, and for technology careers such as computer technician, network administrator, and software developer.
