916 Program

916 Logo

Students at the Alternative High School have the option of taking classes at the Northeast Metro 916 Career and Technical Center in White Bear Lake. It becomes part of their school day as they are bused to the College in the mornings and return by lunch. They then take their required classes in the afternoon. This option allows students to explore a career that might be a good fit for them. 
Check out the description of the courses available!
