The vision for AVUHSD Academies of the Antelope Valley students is that they leave our schools as confident, critical thinkers prepared for advanced learning and career opportunities. Students will be proficient communicators who continually adapt their active and creative minds to a rapidly changing world. This is more important than ever. My staff and I often joke that many of our young students will have jobs in the future that have yet to be created. Their technological skills will have to be advanced in order to be competitive in higher education and eventually the work force. Our faculty works hard to provide our students with a rigorous, equitable blended education that is heavily steeped in technology. Whether it is having a blended class on Adobe Connect or doing their homework on Pearson OpenClass, AAV students become digital citizens proficient in using technology in innovative and productive ways.
