ECSD/CVTC partnership picture

You may not know it but for the past several years Ellsworth High School has been working with the Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) to build quite an offering of Academies so our students can explore, and hopefully, get a head start on their post-high school careers. One shining example of this is our Welding Academy. During the fall semester of the 2020-2021 school year, nine EHS 12th graders traveled to CVTC to begin their educational journey toward becoming professional welders, earning technical college credits while still in high school. That is really awesome, but the Welding Academy is just one of EHS’s Academy offerings. Upper class students have also been able to attend CVTC Academies for CNA, Construction, EMT/EMR 1, and IT. Recently, the school board approved adding an Introduction to Teacher Education Academy and a Virtual Healthcare Academy. With these Academies, District ACP coordinator Gary Skogsbergh and EHS counselors Jessica Wiskow and Kim Bruesewitz are able to really help our students get a headstart on great careers in fields they are passionate about. If you have questions about our academy offerings please call EHS at 715-273-3904.
