N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, January 31, 2013 PRINCIPAUS PEN Dale Barnhill, High School Principal The new DMAcc Southridge Academy, located in the old JC Penney building attached to Southridge Mall, will provide students new program offerings starting in August 2013. The new vocational offerings available. to students include Building Trades/Finish Carpentry, Welding, Auto Collision, Criminal Justice, Career Work Experience, Visual Communications, Automotive Tech: nology, Health Occupations and Teacher Academy. There are many advantages to students, families and Warren County high schools with tile addition of the new DMACC Southridge Academy. One of the main advantages for students is the ability to earn college credit while in high school. Students will gain valuable career and workplace skills through academy programs which are typically too costly for a school to effectively maintain on their own. Students will also be able to explore various career options prior to going off to col- lege or the workforce after high school. LastlN students who choose to take advantage of the DMACC vocational offerings will get a head start on their college oursework. Students who begin taking classes while in high school are automatically able to enroll in the same program after graduation rather than being put on a waiting list, which is common for many of the DMACC vocational programs. To be eligible to take a DMACC vocational course at Southridge, students must be in good academic stand- ing, have the flexibility in their schedule to accommo- date both travel and classes to the Southridge location and have the interest in a vocational field offered. Norwalk High School and the rest of the Warren County high schools will also benefit from the DMACC Southridge Academy. Benefits include: Strong vocational programming available for stu- dents that schools would not otherwise be able to offer Pooling teacher resources so that multiple schools can utilize the skills and experiences of top-notch in- structors in' the area Funding--Districts receive extra funding for every. student who participates in a college-level course in or outside their high school I look forward to the opportunities the DMACC Southridge location will provide to students. Schedul- ing for 2013-14 classes will begin soon. Be in touch with the high school counselors or me if you have questions about the new DMACC programs.
