Congratulations to those who made it into MIT Academy and thank you all for your interest.
MIT Academy is a 6-12 charter school in Vallejo, California that specializes in technology, innovative instruction, and project-based curriculum. We are the highest performing secondary school in Vallejo due in large part to our outstanding staff, committed parents, and motivated students. We have approximately 800 students and although there are waiting lists at most grade levels, determined parents can nearly always get their students into MIT Academy either through the waiting list (which can last up to a year), or through the annual spring lottery.
If you are interested in MIT Academy, please use this extensive website as a resource, or feel free to call me personally at 707-552-6482, Ext. 110. I'm sure the more you know about us, the more you'll appreciate Mare Island Technology Academy!

At their March meeting, the MIT Board of Directors approved the Strategic Planning group's annual update, which included a directive to create and implement an official MIT uniform by August, 2013. The uniform, developed by the MIT VOORP committee in consultation with various parent and student groups, was chosen for cost, durability, and consistency with current dress code requirements. Uniform apparel and policies are shown and described on this page. Note also the following:
And two important final points:
Please see the April Newsletter for more information.
The MIT Academy Strategic Plan Committee met in January to do the annual update of the MIT strategic plan. Recall that the strategic planning process is intended to take the key goals for MIT (including those from the WASC, Technology Plan, reauthorization recommendations, etc.) and combine them into a five-year plan that reflects the best thinking for what the future of MIT should look like. The strategic plan consists of sixteen key goals in the areas of student learning, student support, facilities & technology, and parent and community relations.
Meeting on 1/26/13, and with the able assistance of GroupVision's Anthony Adams, the Strategic Planning Group established goals and priorities for the existing Strategic Plan, and handed it over to the MIT Board of Directors for review and approval. The newly updated plan was approved at the 2/12/13 board meeting, and will now be implemented by staff as written.
The ultimate goal of the MIT strategic plan is to focus MIT’s resources in such a way as to make MIT Academy a premier state-wide and national school of excellence. The board thanks and applauds the many members of the team who helped assemble this document, and looks forward to its benefits for many years to come.
