A new automotive program has been initiated at the Luxemburg-Casco High School. Students are given the opportunity to earn college credits while also receiving credit towards high school graduation. The Ahnapee Automotive program is a partnership between the school and NWTC. Director of Learning Services for Luxemburg-Casco School District Mike Snowberry says the program is an exciting opportunity for students looking for a career as an automotive technician.
Of the twenty students participating in the initial year of the program, 17 are from Luxemburg-Casco and three are from Kewaunee High School. The majority of the time spent in the Ahnapee Automotive program courses are in the shop rather than the classroom setting. Snowberry adds that the new initiative is a “win-win” proposition since the school district pays for the student courses and they are enjoying the classes offered in the high school.
