Statement of Philosophy

The mission of the Applied Learning Department is to prepare students to become productive citizens capable of making a contribution to society.  Students will develop techniques for making wise decisions, learn how businesses operate, learn how to select and apply the tools of technology, learn how to work with their hands in the auto and wood shops, learn how to prepare food, understand nutrition, and learn about family social structures.

        These classes provide a foundation for success for all students, no matter what their ultimate goal in life might be. Students will develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for success in the work force. Also, our courses provide the impetus for students to successfully complete college, junior college, and vocational school programs.
