Atlantic County Vocational School District (01-0120)

Atlantic County Vocational School District

The Atlantic County Vocational School District provides the most comprehensive career and technical education programs and facilities in Atlantic County. The Atlantic County Institute of Technology (ACIT) is the school of choice for approximately 1500 high school students from 23 municipalities in a county that covers 566 square miles and includes Atlantic City.

ACIT offers nine Academy Programs and six Career Major Programs in a state-of-the-art facility that was recently renovated and expanded. Through these programs, students have the opportunity to complete an array of academic and career and technical courses to earn both a high school diploma and a technical certification. The success of the academic and career and technical programs at ACIT has been recognized with a National Blue Ribbon School designation in 2008, and by US News & World Report “America’s Best High Schools,” as a Bronze Level School for the past five years.

The district also operates the Atlantic County Alternative High School (ACAHS) which is now located at the Atlantic County Special Services School. The ACAHS offers a supportive and non-traditional program for approximately 100 at-risk students from across Atlantic County. The curriculum is designed to meet individual student needs and learning styles through a personalized, problem- based, and blended learning instructional model.

In addition to the high school programs, ACIT provides post-secondary education for the adult learner with a full-time Practical Nursing Program and an Adult Evening School with approximately 500 adult students enrolled in both full and part-time career and technical programs.

With our new and improved facility, we look forward to providing students who attend ACIT with an exceptional academic and technical education as well as the opportunity to participate in athletics, music, and performing arts. These activities along with our existing co-curricular clubs and service organizations will continue to encourage student involvement, enhance school spirit, and provide an atmosphere for excellence.

At the Atlantic County Institute of Technology, our goal is to prepare students who are college and career ready as well as to provide the region’s employers with skilled employees needed to make their businesses and organizations successful. We are proud of our success in meeting these goals.
