Welcome to the ninth year of the Governor's Career and Technical Academy Arlington (GTCAA)! Our program is growing fast, and this year we will have two sections of dual-enrolled computer science, and two section of dual-enrolled web design and development.
Web Application Development students will be completing Web Page Design I and Web Page Design II, which will prepare them to develop real websites for real customers. During Web Page Design II this year, students will be preparing for the CIW Advanced HTML5 & CSS3 Specialist certification.
After a successful pilot last year, we will have two sections of the new NVCC CSC200, Introduction to Computer Science course, dual-enrolled with our high school computer science course. Students will earn college credits while they are introduced to the big ideas in computer science and learn to create mobile apps using App Inventor for Android. During the Spring semester, they will continue their CS program with the NVCC Scientific Programming course, in which they will learn to write more advanced programs using the Python programming language.
You are invited to browse this site to see examples of student work and projects, and the class materials and assignments we use here at the Academy. So enjoy your visit and come back often. There are exciting things going on in ICT at the Career Center!
