Sixteen Plymouth High School soon-to-be graduating seniors qualified to earn the Statewide Transfer General Education Core STGEC certificate through Ivy Tech College pending successful completion of their spring courses this semester. The STGEC certificate represents a minimum of 30 college credits across six different competencies. This is the fourth consecutive year Plymouth High School has partnered with Ivy Tech to offer PHS students the possibility of earning a STGEC certificate. The STGEC program is designed to prepare students for a successful 30 credit transfer to the bachelor-degree granting institution of their choice. Ivy Tech puts the value on the STGEC certificate of upward of $25,000.
Meanwhile, 11 North Central Area Vocational Cooperative NCAVC Health Careers students will be receiving a Certified Nursing Assistant CNA certificate through Ivy Tech as well. The students are all second-year students enrolled in the Health Science program held at Plymouth High School. The CNA certificate easily allows students to continue onto college to build on the education they have already received through this dual-credit college program. The two-year Health Careers program is open to students from 10 nearby school corporations/districts that make up the NCAVC.
In years past students who received a STGEC certificate or a CNA certificate were able to take part in the Ivy Tech Community College commencement ceremony held at Purcell Pavilion on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the commencement ceremony has been postponed.
