Enrollment at Apollo Career Center is at a record high as more students are choosing career tech.

Superintendent Keith Horner, speaking to the Lima Kiwanis Club about what Apollo has to offer. The career center has 772 junior and seniors from their 11 associate school districts. Their goal is to create a passion in a student for a career whether they continue on to college or enter the workforce after graduation. Horner says they may be adding to their curriculum in the near future.

"We are looking at adding a couple of programs. One is expanding our welding program, and then two, we're considering a firefighter program as an option for our high school students as well, and then there are things that are a little too early to talk about right now because they're still in the kind of the idea phase but those are two programs that we are looking at expanding and then possibly doing new," said Keith Horner.

Horner says the adult education program at Apollo is also seeing increased enrollment, and just last year had an impact on at least 6,000 people in the region.
