Retired PCCTE Director Jon Groth receives one of Indiana’s highest honors

After 26, Jon retired and was honored with the Sagamore of the Wabash award. He joins a list of recipients that includes such individuals as legendary comedian David Letterman, Hall of Fame racer Jeff Gordan, and Indianapolis Colts icon Adam Vinatieri.


Indiana has added components to its graduation pathways that encourages students to explore post high school opportunities while still in school.  One of these opportunities is the participation in Career and Technical Education Programs.  These decisions affect how much money you make, your lifestyle, and the satisfaction you feel from what you do every day. You can set an exciting new direction for yourself with Porter County Career and Technical Education!

Porter County Career and Technical Education is much more than high school. It is a high school with direction, hands-on learning, and real-world work experience. You’ll earn credits that can be transferred to a two or four-year college. Plus, you’ll earn certifications recognized by business and industry that could secure you a job right out of high school!

Our staff has the knowledge, skills, and work experience to bring their classrooms alive! Their passion radiates among the students and staff to create a culture of professionalism at the career center and all of our outlying programs.

I invite you to visit our programs for a tour. Ask questions, and find out more about how we help each one of our students open the door to their future!  We want to empower YOU and arm you with the tools for success!

Dental Testimonial
I completed the dental vocational program with Mrs. Doane from 2010-2011. Still to this day when talking with students, I recommend exploring vocational programs. I loved every second of it! It’s a great opportunity to gauge if your career choice is exactly what you’re interested in before investing in classes after high school.

I wanted to reach out and say thank you for being such an awesome teacher. I am currently in a psychology course at Ball State, and we are covering the stages of development. Thanks to your class, I am familiar with the theorists and their views on development! I just wanted to reach out to say that your class has truly prepared me for my education courses.

Being at the Porter County Career Center was one of the most influential times of my life. The community was welcoming and resourceful, and so many opportunities were made available for me. It is a fantastic environment for learning. What they are providing for high schoolers is incredible, and I am extremely thankful to have received education from them. Also, Mr. G’s CAD and Animation class is the best!

I attended the Education Professions program at Flint Lake with Mrs. Zecevich. I have been accepted into the TEP program and have been "learning" about lesson plans. Everything I learned is new to these students, while I'm a rockstar at it! I'm so glad I was able to attend vocational school!
