The Elkhart Area Career Center Mission
The Elkhart Area Career Center (EACC) has been serving juniors and seniors across Michiana since 1972. We serve nine Indiana school districts, multiple private schools, and one Michigan school district. Our half-day programs serve over 1000 students annually, providing a strong foundation for career exploration and preparing students for either immediate placement in the field or a jumpstart on their post-secondary training. The EACC’s responsiveness over the years allows for programs to reflect local and national needs across the various career clusters. A continued focus on instructional rigor and relevant training position our students for future success. All programs at the EACC are built on the concept of offering stackable credentials. Through dual credit agreements with Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University, students participating in EACC programs have the opportunity to begin working towards a college credential. In fact, twelve of our programs are designated “early college” and allow students the opportunity to earn a certificate, technical certificate, or in some cases an associate’s degree when paired with dual credits earned at their home school. In addition, industry recognized certifications are available across most programs and many times these credentials bring more value than college credit. Students also have the opportunity to participate in work-based learning and project-based learning in all programs. These meaningful experiences allow our students to connect theory and hands-on skills to the application necessary in their field of study. Support from our over 400 business partners makes these opportunities more genuine and allows students a chance to begin building relationships in their field of interest. Our focus on building relationships, modeling, and teaching professionalism, developing a rigorous curriculum, and creating real-world experiences prepares our students for their futures.
