With passion and purpose, the experienced instructors and dedicated staff of the A.K. Smith Career Center provide LaPorte County high school students with meaningful opportunities to achieve their goals. Here, students learn from professionals in their fields as they explore career options, build work ethic, prepare for life in a global economy and, in many cases, earn industry certifications and college credits.
Regardless of which program of study they pursue, our students engage in a rigorous curriculum and gain a broad academic knowledge base. We deliver hands-on classroom experience in each career path as well as job shadowing experiences and internships. Many students juggle their regular high school extracurricular activities with Career Center studies, giving them yet another taste of life in the busy working world.
I invite you to visit our Center for a tour. Ask questions, and find out more about how we help each one of our students open the door to the future!
