DMACC Center Offers Story County Students a Free Head Start on College

 A program from the Des Moines Area Community College could make your journey from high school to career both shorter and less expensive.  The DMACC Career Academy — Hunziker Center in Ames offers high school students free classes in the areas of:

·      Auto Collision

·      Building Trades/Finish Carpentry

·      Culinary Arts

·      Information Technology Network Administration

·      Visual Communications (Graphic Design/Web)

·      Automotive Technology

·      Criminal Justice

·      Health Occupations

·      Career Work Experience

·      Teacher Academy

 What’s in it for you? Plenty! First, it’s the perfect opportunity to get double the credit — both high school and college credit — for taking one class. That makes it possible to graduate college with a significant number of college credits, and that could let you finish your college degree and start earning money in your chosen career sooner than other students.

 Second, DMACC Hunziker Center courses are free to students in participating high schools. The average high school student takes credits worth $1500 at the Hunziker Center for no cost at all to the student or their families.  That’s a significant savings on expensive college costs. Free classes are available to students in these high schools:


Ames                                                 Ballard

Baxter                                                 Boone

Collins-Maxwell                               Colo-Nesco

Gilbert                                                 Madrid

Nevada                                              North Polk

Ogden                                                Roland-Story

South Hamilton                                West Marshall

 Finally, the Hunziker Center is a no-risk opportunity for students to explore possible career areas while they’re still in high school. Students can graduate high school with a clearer picture of next steps for preparing for their chosen career.

 The opportunities at the DMACC Career Academy — Hunziker Center in Ames are at least worth taking a closer look. For more information, go to www.dmacc.edu/ames/asp or call Randy Gabriel at 515-965-6011 / John Kinley at 515-663-6705.
