The Academy of Hospitality and Tourism (AOHT)

The Academy of Hospitality and Tourism (AOHT) is a collaborative effort between the National Academy Foundation, the Clark County School District and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors’ Authority. Together we provide students with college preparatory curriculum as well as the training and skills necessary for professional, entry-level positions in the travel & tourism industry. While attending the Academy, students take courses related to hotel/motel management, gaming management, accounting, marketing, and finance. AOHT students are introduced to all of the exciting career opportunities available in travel and tourism industries and placed in a paid internship position after their junior year. During the summer internship, students work directly with management personnel in various travel agencies, hotels, airlines or other travel related businesses that are so important to the economic base of Las Vegas.

Upon completion of the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism program, students receive a high school diploma, as well as a certificate of completion of a work experience internship and travel and tourism (business) courses. Many of the graduates of this program now fill management positions in hotels, airlines, airports, travel agencies, cruise lines and many other travel related businesses throughout the world. Other graduates have gone on to pursue an education in other fields and use their background in the travel industry to enhance their personal lives.
