Under a cooperative program with Columbus City Schools and Delaware Area Career Centers, Westerville students may take Career-Technical courses taught at career centers located nearby in Columbus and Delaware. In these courses, students learn skills so they can enter a job immediately after high school or continue in college. Students learn by practical, active experiences, similar to those found on the job, as well as by studying classroom theory.
