 EVIT East, 6625 S.

Combs. The 10-acre East Campus opened in August 2011 adjacent to ASU Polytechnic. EVIT’s Dr. A. Keith Crandell (Main) Campus is located at 1601 W. Main Street, Mesa. EVIT also offers centralized campus programs at Apache Junction High School.

 Students spend a half-day at EVIT and a half-day at their high school. School districts provide transportation to EVIT for most students.

 EVIT offers 40 career training programs. The Veterinary Assistant, Aviation and Future Engineers programs are offered exclusively at EVIT East. Starting in August, EVIT East will also be offering the new Behavior, Mental and Social Health Services program.

EVIT students have a 96 percent high school graduation rate, 2 out of 3 go on to college; and 87 percent are in jobs, college or the military within one year of completing their CTE training.

 In 2015, EVIT was named an A+ School of Excellence by the Arizona Educational Foundation, and recently, readers of the East Valley Tribune voted EVIT as Best Public School in Mesa for the third time in the last four years.
