Welcome to CAMP!
The Computer And Media Pathway at Apple Valley High School
CAMP envisions students of various abilities and backgrounds using technology to improve their individual academic achievement as well to enhance their career opportunities and options. CAMP graduates will demonstrate industry-ready skills, attitudes, and behaviors that will enable them to enter the informational technology profession directly or to continue their post-secondary education.
As an Academy, CAMP schedules its students into classes taught by a core group of teachers. These teachers encourage students to use technology in their classes for note taking, research, and activities. Each year includes a cross-curricular project: in the sophomore year, students participate in “The Zombie Apocalypse”; in the junior year, students complete the “CAMP Tank” project; and in their senior year, students will produce a portfolio to highlight their skills and help them transition to a university, trade school, or directly to the industry.
