It was a record year for Pickaway-Ross’ secondary education programs. 676 industry credentials were earned by seniors in variety of career-training programs – an all-time high for PRCTC.
Students earning credentials are not just limited to those at the main campus, these credentials also include students who were enrolled in magnet programs. Magnet programs take place at satellite campus locations that include PRCTC’s Circleville and Industrial Dr. campuses and at Ohio University-Chillicothe.
Magnet program students complete credentials related to courses in allied health, sports medicine, RAMTEC (robotics) and veterinary sciences. Students enrolled in the PRCTC Magnet programs attend their career-technical course for a portion of the day and complete their academic classes at their assigned high school.
Main campus students achieved an even wider variety of credentials through academies like Information and Marketing, Construction and Manufacturing, Human Services, and Transportation. These include career-training in twenty-one different career pathways.
The 2019 Senior Completion Ceremony was held at Ohio Christian University on Friday, May 17th. Superintendent Franks and PRCTC Board members presented students with their career passports.
Student of the Year, Samantha Moore provided the student address and Director of Secondary Education Jason Vesey delivered the address to the Class of 2019.
