In August, Griffin Information Technology Prep School students will be the first cohort to participate in the newly awarded Career and Professional Education Act (CAPE) Academy. Griffin has been selected to participate in the Florida Middle School IT Career Academy Technical Assistance demonstration project. The project will be conducted by The Whetstone Group and is sponsored by Workforce Florida Inc. It will provide technical assistance to 15 newly established middle school Information Technology career academies throughout the state of Florida that will focus on Microsoft and Adobe Certifications.
