Welcome To Muncie Area Career Center!
The Muncie Area Career Center (MACC) is an area career and technical education school dedicated to the development of academic and career skills to prepare high school students and adult learners for college and career. The Muncie Area Career Center achieves this mission through two programs: Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Adult Education (AE).
Our CTE program serves high school juniors and seniors from the following participating high schools in Blackford, Delaware and Randolph counties: Blackford, Burris, Cowan, Daleville, Delta, Monroe Central, Muncie Central, Union City, Wapahani, Wes-Del, Winchester, and Yorktown.
There are 14 career and technical education programs available through the MACC: Advanced Manufacturing & Automation, Automotive Service Technology, Biomedical Investigations, Construction, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Dental, Digital Design & Media, Early Childhood Education, Electrical, Fire & Rescue, Health Sciences, Purdue Engineering Technology and Welding. Students who are in the morning session attend class from 7:55 AM until 10:30 AM, and students who are in the afternoon session attend from 12:25 PM until 3:00 PM.
Our knowledgeable and experienced faculty facilitate a variety of activities that assist students in learning about career and post-secondary opportunities. All students are required to participate in at least one job shadowing experience each year. In addition, students in specific program areas also engage in clinical or internship experiences that allow students to work and train in a local business, company, or agency. The job shadowing and internship experiences are a great opportunity for students to learn what specific career fields are really like so that they can make informed decisions about college and career. Additionally, many MACC programs offer students the opportunity to earn dual credit for post-secondary education as well as industry certification in their chosen field.
Our Adult Education (AE) program serves adult learners in Delaware, Randolph, and Blackford counties through a variety of 100% free program offerings. Courses are offered at a variety of locations and times to accommodate the varying demands of our adult learners' schedules and situations.
Learners who want to complete the requirements for their high school diploma can do so through our Adult Secondary Credit (ASC) classes. Those who wish to prepare to take the high school equivalency exam can take classes with certified teachers in our Adult Basic Education (ABE) program. Adults who want to improve their English speaking and writing skills can sign up for our English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Anyone who is interested in attaining a professional certification can enroll in one of our IET programs to work with a teacher and prepare for the required test(s). The MACC AE program also operates workplace classrooms in partnership with local industry to provide educational and training opportunities for employees.
If you want a unique experience that will help you make a career choice and prepare you for post-secondary career and educational opportunities, give us a call and enroll in one of the MACC programs.
