Drive-In Graduation for the class of 2020! We are all winding down for the school year!

Almost time for grades to be calculated! We are working hard on the graduation ceremony! It’s going to be so cool! At AOBI we always think OUTSIDE THE BOX! We couldn’t let our graduates lose one more thing, so we are having a drive in movie theater graduation! Friday, May 22nd at 9 am our graduates and their families will come park in our parking lot and watch their graduate walk across the stage to receive their diploma. Our very own math department will be creating a take home video for each graduate to keep. Observing the social distancing mandate the parking lot is restricted to graduates and their immediate family.


AOBI Staff Completes STOP THE BLEED safety training provided by ICSAVE.ORG, local law, EMS, Fire, Air Medical and hospital services in the local tri-state area.  Thank you Sunrise Rotary Club for funding the safety kits for our classrooms.  Help is needed to fund other schools in the area.  Please see FOR MORE INFO.

Little bit about AOBI

Providing knowledge and skills to build a better future: The Academy of Building Industries (AOBI) is a public charter high school geared towards the vocational trades.  High school students, grades 9-12, work towards their high school diploma by following the academic graduation requirements, while focusing on a trade to complete their elective credits. In the end they receive their high school diploma, as well as the possibility of a certificate in the trade they’ve specialized in. AOBI gives tri-state area students a school choice. It allows parents to be involved in the future success of their student, and their student be in control of their future.

All public notices of our governing school board meetings will be posted on our front door at AOBI’s physical address and on our website under School Board Meeting Agendas.
