Campus Visits

Each school year North Ed Career Tech welcomes students to campus to tour the facility, meet instructors, and learn firsthand about the career-oriented programs available to them during their junior and senior years of high school. Twenty-one programs are offered as an extended learning opportunity that supplements the students' academic coursework at their local high school.

Tenth Grade Visitation - Occurring each winter, sophomores from every area high school have the opportunity to tour the center with their classmates and explore three programs of their choosing. Those students who are interested in applying for enrollment for the coming year are encouraged to work with their home school counselor and submit an application prior to April 15.

It is always best to see the campus and our students in action during the course of any school day. Please call our main office at 231.922.6273 to talk to a staff member about planning a visit.
