East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT)
If you or your student is interested in learning more about EVIT, please check out this recorded presentation done by our previous EVIT representative, Mr. Blair Howland: Recorded EVIT Presentation
EVIT is a Cognia accredited career and technical school serving district, charter and home-schooled high school students who reside in 11 East Valley school districts. Students from Scottsdale SUSD can spend a half-day at EVIT in a career training program and the other half-day at their home high school.
EVIT adds to a student's academic instruction with hands-on learning provided by experienced professionals and excellent resources. By allowing students to earn elective credit in more than 40 occupation-specific programs, EVIT enhances the future of every type of student. Most programs prepare students for state or national licensing or certifications, internship opportunities and over 300 dual enrollment college credits.
Applications for the 2024-2025 school year are open as of November 1, 2023. Please see below or visit evit.com for the high school enrollment process:
When applying online, the following required documents should be requested in advance, as they will need to be uploaded to complete the application process:
• Discipline Record
• Current Unofficial Transcripts - (visit StudenVUE, click on "Course History", then "Unofficial Transcript")
• Proof of Immunizations
*Your counselor will provide your discipline record upon request. Hopefully, you have a copy of your immunizations but if you do not, you can request a copy from the school nurse - Nurse Haley Mcmackin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please allow a minimum of 48 hours for processing.
Please note: EVIT has moved to a modified, year-round calendar (Click Here to view the 2024-2025 EVIT school year calendar), so dates will not line up with SUSD's schedule, exactly. If you apply and are accepted, your acceptance is not binding – you can change your mind at a later date.
How to get started:
Complete and submit the online application. Parents and/or legal guardians of new students will need an active email account (that is checked regularly) to access and use the online registration system. EVIT prefers personal email. They do not want students using their school email address. The email account provided will be used for important communication updates from the East Valley Institute of Technology.
The EVIT Admissions Office will inform students via e-mail once the application has been approved, or if additional information is required to complete the application.
Students are welcome to contact the Admissions Office with questions or to schedule an appointment with an EVIT Counselor. Please call 480-461-4108.

Each year, EVIT opens their main campus for their annual EVIT Expo. The EVIT Expo for 2023 was held on January 28th. Over 3,000 parents/guardians and future students attended the event. It's a great chance for students and their families to experience all of the great programs EVIT has to offer. Visitors were able to speak with staff and current students about EVIT and their programs on both the Main and Power campus. Tours were given and EVIT counselors were on hand to help with enrollment questions. This link will take you to a video highlighting the day - https://youtu.be/25GtXkjs-d8.
The 2024 EVIT Expo will be held on January 27th, 2024 at EVIT's main campus (1601 W Main St, Mesa, AZ, 85201).
