Eight different programs will be offered when Kewaunee County’s three high schools join forces to provide more opportunities for its students. The groundwork for the Ahnapee Regional Technical Academy has been worked on for the last few years as schedules and logistics were figured out. Algoma High School’s focus will be on CNC, machine tool, and emergency technician courses while Kewaunee will feature classes in agriculture, electro-mechanical programming, and welding. Luxemburg-Casco will host studies for those wishing to become an IT Software Developer or pursue AP credits. Sarah Nelson from the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Regional Center in Luxemburg hopes parents and students will take advantage of the partnership.
NWTC and the three high school superintendents will officially enter the agreement with charter signing ceremony next Thursday at Algoma High School. Students will be able to attend the courses at the different high schools free of charge beginning this fall.
