To Build a Culture of Excellence and Success for Every Student


The mission of Crooms Academy of Information Technology is to provide innovative teaching and learning in a technology-enriched environment and to engage students in an academically challenging curriculum that prepares them for post-secondary education with industry validated technology skills.

Alma Mater:

Dear Ole Crooms Academy, The pride of all the land.
May the name of Crooms be heralded in every foreign land.
To thee we’ll sing and always praise, to thee we’ll always stand.
To thee we’ll praise and always praise our Alma Mater Dear.

In the good old summer time, mid pleasures and good cheer,
We’ll sing a song with spirits high to our Alma Mater Dear.
May her sons and daughters stand forever and ever true,
To Dear Ole Crooms Academy, the Orange and Maroon.

Now when our student days are over and we from school must go,
True womanhood and manhood, we’ll always strive to show.
We’ll fight for thee and strive for thee, we’ll honor and adore.
We’ll live for thee and toil until we reach the golden shore.
We’ll live for thee and toil until we reach the golden shore.
