This innovative school is providing an opportunity for hands-on learners to develop new skills through movement and obtain abilities that employers are looking for in future employees.

Three different pathways will be offered. Pre-engineering, computer science and heavy equipment with each area of study partnering with a local business or educational institution. Students will have the opportunity to leave this program with industry certifications and dual credits that count towards college.
