Crooms AoIT Named a NAF Distinguished Academy for Second Year in a Row

Crooms Academy of Information Technology has been designated as a National Academy Foundation (NAF) Distinguished Academy for a second year in a row. Crooms AoIT is only one of eight academies nationwide to receive such an honor. The distinction is a result of the dedication and hard work of those involved with the academy, including Dr. Connie Collins and Academy Director Demetria Hayes, teachers, students, and advisory board members.

To earn the Distinguished Academy distinction, Crooms AoIT participated in an academy assessment review process this year and received an overall score which made it eligible for distinguished status. In recognition of this status, NAF will provide the school with a banner and Crooms AoIT will be recognized at NAF's annual professional development conference this summer.

NAF is an acclaimed national network of high school career academies predominately based in urban districts with rigorous, career-themed curricula created with current industry and educational expertise. During the 2011-2012 school year, nearly 500 NAF academies served more than 60,000 students in 39 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
