Our partnership with the Porter County Career Center allows our juniors and seniors the opportunity to explore career paths and earn certifications that put them on the path to success following graduation. Our high school students also have the opportunity to set themselves up for success by taking Advanced Placement and dual credit programs that prepare our students for their academic career at the collegiate level.
