In 1999, Griffin Technology Academies opened Vallejo’s first charter school, Mare Island Technology Academy. MIT Academy has given thousands of local underserved high school students the opportunity to graduate, not only with a plan to go to college, but with an associates degree.
Together with the support of the Vallejo community, GTA opened three additional charter schools - MIT Academy Middle School, Griffin Academy High School, and Griffin Academy Middle School. Through it all, the community of Vallejo has supported GTA, our schools, and most of all, our amazing students!
Since 1999, our schools have provided a rigorous yet nurturing learning environment that strives to meet the needs of all kids. Founded on a “growth” philosophy that all kids can learn, MIT alumni have gone on to UC Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, Howard, and over 50 other universities nation-wide.
