Northwest Career Academy
Northwest Technology Center in conjunction with your individual community is proud to be able to host the Northwest Career Academy. The academy is an entrepreneurship awareness program for students entering the eighth grade that is made possible by Northwest Technology and Oklahoma Rural Rehabilitation Corporation in conjunction with local leaders and local lending institutions. The Northwest Career Academy is an awareness program that will allow your child to see opportunity in our area, and will encourage them to take ownership in the future of this area. Areas of focus will be: passion for their community, personal responsibility and communication, setting goals for their community and working to achieve them, as well as building relationships with community leaders that can last a lifetime. This experience will provide for a four day long experience culminating with a significant scholarship presented on Thursday, May 23, 2019 for each student selected. The scholarship will be placed in an account and will be payable to the student upon his/her graduation from their local high school and completion of the program. This scholarship money will be made payable to the student for continuing education or tools of a trade that he or she may have chosen during high school. The student upon making application is agreeing to attendance of the Academy on May 20 – 23, 2019. The student is further agreeing to meet annually throughout their high school career with members of their NW Academy class each year for a half day refresher session. The program will be a unique opportunity for our kids to gain an appreciation for their local community as well as build relationships and leadership skills that we hope will last a lifetime. The 2019 Northwest Career Academy will be held May 20 – 23. The Application is available in Microsoft Word format – Click Here for Application.
