Preparation for high-wage jobs is available during high school to teens in Porter County and Hobart.
High school students may choose from more than 30 half-day programs at the Porter County Career and Technical Center and other sites. They might consider everything from Printing Technology to Construction Technology to Culinary Science. Most students will have a chance to earn dual college credits while enrolled in a career and technical class.
The first of three open houses will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 27. Most programs will welcome current high school sophomores and juniors from 8 to 9 a.m. Parents are welcome, too.
Schools served by the career and technical programs are Boone Grove, Chesterton, Hebron, Hobart, Kouts, Morgan Township, Portage, Valparaiso, Washington Township and Wheeler High Schools.
