Information Technology is for students who enjoy video games, computers, mobile devices, and the Internet. It is also for students interested in pursuing careers in Cybersecurity, Digital Forensics, Programming, and Computer Science. If you are into fixing and upgrading computers, creating and modifying code, or cracking passwords and encrypted files, Information Technology is for you. This program also offers the opportunity to earn college credit for some courses. Marlington students can begin taking Information Technology courses at any point (9-12) during high school, while Alliance High School students undertake a two year (11-12) program.
