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 is a public school district that serves students from ten East Valley school districts. High school students from Apache Junction, Chandler, Fountain Hills, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Scottsdale, Tempe, Higley and J.O. Combs spend half their day at EVIT and the other half at their sending high school.
Because EVIT is a public school, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students from the sending districts that meet class prerequisites can attend tuition-free.
EVIT also offers continuing education classes to adults, allowing them to benefit from quality classes with low tuition rates and a variety of financial aid and interest-free payment options.
One student at a time, EVIT is fulfilling its mission of providing a productive, technically trained workforce to meet the market-driven needs of business and industry.
