Students from all three Vigo County high schools visited Ivy Tech Community College recently to discover post-secondary career opportunities.
In partnership with the Vigo County School Corporation, nearly 250 Vigo County high school freshmen and sophomores visited Ivy Tech’s main campus and south Terre Haute site to hear about their programs.
“The partnership our corporation has with Ivy Tech is opening up new opportunities for every type of learner to plan for the future,” said Michelle Tracy, Vigo County School Corporation’s guidance director. “We want every chance to show our students what is available to them and what they are capable of, and Ivy Tech is leading the way with us.”
In addition to discovering post-secondary opportunities at Ivy Tech, students also learned how to take advantage of dual-credit courses offered at their high school that count towards college credit. These courses are free for high school students and in some cases, can allow students to earn an Ivy Tech certificate or credential before graduating high school.
Students interested in pursuing their certificate or associate degree at Ivy Tech are invited to schedule a visit to learn more about the programs Ivy Tech offers.
