    What is AOHT?

    • The Academy of Hospitality and Tourism (AOHT) is a “small learning community” focused on careers in the hospitality, tourism and restaurant industry. 


    • Students apply to the academy during their Freshman year, and the curriculum begins in the Sophomore year. 


    • Student’s core subjects are enhanced with a concentration in hospitality to include hotel administration, restaurant management, culinary arts, event planning, travel and tourism. 


    • The excitement and diversity in the hospitality and tourism industry makes it an attractive field for students who are fascinated by other cultures and economies.


    • The AOHT provides engaging courses and real-life work experiences that inspire students about their future whether it is in this industry or other professions.   


    • Completion of the AOHT program of study helps prepare students for post-secondary education not only in hospitality and tourism related majors but also for any concentrated program requiring a strong foundation in social studies, business, and language arts.


    The application process begins during January of the student's Freshman year.
