In 2010-2011, Digital Design and Communications (DDC) formerly known as GrizzCom, was established at Granite Hills High School. DDC is supported by the National Academy Foundation (NAF), and was Linked Learning Certified by NAF in 2012. NAF academies are organized around one of five career themes: Finance, Hospitality & Tourism, Information Technology, Health Sciences or Engineering. The focus of DDC is to provide a diverse learning environment for college and career preparation in the digital design and mass communication fields. Students are prepared to broadcast and publish information in multiple formats, including written text, audio, video, and the world wide web. Students in the DDC pathway are provided an opportunity to foster individual inquiry, high levels of collaboration through team based projects across disciplines, and become future leaders in the communication field. In the spring of 2014, DDC had its first graduating class of students.
