• About the Compressed Air Academy

    students looking at air compressor
    The Compressed Air Academy is a program for mechanically inclined students who are interested in a head start on a career in a vibrant LaPorte County industry.

    In partnership with Vanair, Sullair, BOSS Industries, and Dekker Technologies, the Compressed Air Academy (located at Michigan City High School in Mr. Rochowiak's classroom lab!) prepares students for high-demand jobs in the air compressor and vacuum industries. They work with industry-grade air compressors and vacuum systems in the classroom and have hands-on learning opportunities at local compressor industrial complexes.

    As college costs soar and local industries struggle to find qualified workers, the Compressed Air Academy is an attractive alternative to a four-year degree for mechanically inclined students.

    Ask your guidance counselor for more information about the Compressed Air Academy!
