On Saturday, June 2, twenty area high school students will receive Certificates of Graduation for completing an intensive technology-training and college preparatory program through UW-Madison’s Information Technology Academy (ITA). All twenty of this year’s graduating class are planning to attend higher education institutions this fall.
The graduation event will be held on June 2 from 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Lowell Center in Madison. The program will include a keynote address by Cynthia Lin, Social Justice Educator at the UW-Madison Multicultural Student Center.
ITA is a four-year pre-college program that provides hands-on training and access to technology for talented students of color and economically disadvantaged students attending Madison public schools. During their four-year ITA experience, the students meet bi-weekly during the academic year to learn Web design, animation, graphic design and other technology skills.
