The East Valley Institute of Technology is one of the best resources Arizona's students have to guarantee themselves success. Upheld as a model for career and technical education by the U.S. Department of Education, EVIT provides students with the advanced skills and training needed to thrive in today's competitive job market.
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. EVIT is also meeting the needs of families faced with the ever-increasing cost of a college education. Two out of three EVIT students go on to higher education, many of them using their EVIT training to secure employment to help pay their college tuition.
EVIT programs are tuition-free to high school students who live in 10 East Valley school districts – including SUSD. These students spend half their day at EVIT and the other half at Chaparral.
