Lake Area and Mitchell Technical Institutes are offering high school students a chance to earn dual credit while pursuing programs of study in the health care and energy fields. Coursework is mostly online. Students are required to complete labs on campus. Students can earn up to 12 credits.
“Dual credit is one of the tenets of High School 2025. It provides students with rigorous coursework, while allowing them to learn about specific career fields,” said Sarah Carter who oversees the South Dakota Virtual School. “By packaging these programs of study and making them available mostly online, it creates new educational opportunities to students across the state.”
Schools can register their students for these online programs of study via the South Dakota Virtual School at www.sdvs.k12.sd.us. In the course listing, look for “MTI Energy Career Training” and “LATI Health Services.”
