It is the Forrest Center’s Vision to offer Value added Education!
Data shows that students who attend the Forrest Center for Career and Technical Programs graduate at higher rates. In addition, the Forrest Center offers opportunities for students to earn Technical Attainment and Articulated and or Transcripted College Credits. This means that if students work hard enough, they can earn real industry certifications and can earn college credit upon completion of their Forrest Center Program. That is Value Added Education!
The Power of Yet!
Forrest Center Teachers and Students have GRIT! When we are tempted to say “I CAN’T” we have the courage to add “YET”!
