Application - the application opened on November 18th. Priority application deadline is January 13th.
All students interested in attending the Delaware Area Career Center must submit an application and be accepted to the program.
Additionally, the Delaware Area Career Center will be hosting an Open House on December 1st.
DACC's Open House is a great opportunity for sophomore students to talk with the DACC teachers, explore their campus and learn about the programs provided.
In addition to the traditional programs for students to complete in their final 2 years of high school, there are a range of senior only 1 year programs. Many of these take place from 2:45-5:00pm so that students who still need time to complete more core classes in their school day are able to take advantage of the hands-on training opportunities at DACC. Examples of these Flexible Learning Options programs include: Pharmacy Technician, Nail Technician, App Development & Programming Technician, Healthcare Technician, Digital Design Techniques, and Facilities Pre-Engineering Technician. Here is a brief video that introduces these opportunities. All interested students are encouraged to attend the Open House to learn more.
