Miami Springs Senior High is now being called iTech Academy, a Miami-Dade County Public School magnet program to attract students interested in information technology. Specifically, iTech Academy focuses on the process of designing and developing software games.

According to the iTech Academy website, iTech Academy offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers such as a Game/ Simulation Designer, Game Programmer, and Game Software Developer in
the Information Technology career cluster. The iTech Academy focuses
on technical skill proficiency, through competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills.
It encompasses all aspects of the Information Technology career cluster. The content includes but is not
limited to practical experiences in game/simulation conceptualization, design, storyboarding, development methodologies, essential programming techniques, and implementation issues. Specialized programming skills involving advanced mathematical calculations and physics are also integrated into the curriculum.

The iTech Academy focuses on 3 areas: iDREAM, iDESIGN, and iCODE.

iDREAM: The creative process for designing a game is a team effort using unique ideas from all collaborating members to create the whole game. For this reason, games exist for people of all ages, demographics, and on a variety of platforms. Use your unique abilities to tell a story, program, make art, and music to become part of the next generation of game designers. Follow your passion for gaming, turn your unique vision into a reality, and enroll in iTech Academy at Miami Springs Senior High School to meet the growing demand of game design.

iDESIGN: The creative process for each game involves various aspects of the whole game.
Our curriculum is designed to explore the creative process of each one of the major aspects in game design. As a concept and storyboard artist you will develop ideas that will become your game. In addition, you will work with 3DS Max to produce objects and characters for your game as a character artist. As a level designer you will create the environment your player will interact in and as a texture artist you will add convincing skins to your objects, characters, and environment. Moreover, you will incorporate sound effects and produce the music for your game. Finally, no game can go untested, as a tester you will learn to find solutions to problems in your game.
