Join us for our Fall Open House!

Open House - October 18, 5-7pm

We're opening our doors to the entire community for our annual fall open house!

This is your chance to come see what we're all about. Check out our programs, visit our labs, talk to current students and staff. We think you'll be amazed at the range of programs we offer and the many ways we're helping students find successful futures. Did you know our students earn free college and technical school credit plus all kinds of certifications? And we connect them to both colleges and employers.

Come find out how!
