High School students can enroll in college courses for which they also receive high school credit; it is not unusual for our students to graduate with a full semester of college on their transcript. Our trades classes for high school students, from welding to certified nursing assistant, are hands-on courses that teach valuable skills for a career or simply to help people become more proficient in a DIY world. Our instructors come from industry so they are prepared to help students learn the skills necessary to establish themselves as a valuable employee, a small business owner, and a solid team member.
