Clarksville, Indiana is at the center of a large labor shed, with more than 850,000 workers within a one-hour drive. Many of our area’s residents descended from the pioneer families who transformed a vast wilderness into a thriving commercial region, and they carry on the legacy of a devotion to hard work and education.
That spirit lives on in our local K-12 and postsecondary schools, which share a strong focus on instilling the skills and attitudes students need to become effective members of the local workforce. For example, Clarksville High School students benefit from Renaissance Academy programs using project-based learning and technology focused on the needs of the modern workplace.
High school students also have the opportunity to enter workforce-based training through the Prosser Career Education Center. That approach continues at the postsecondary level, through workforce programs at the Clark County campus of Ivy Tech Community College.
That’s not all! Through Conexus Indiana, students can participate in online programs providing career-focused pathways in advanced manufacturing and logistics sectors. These innovative programs allow students to experience digital transformation firsthand, helping them remain competitive with global peers and supporting the creation of a collaborative ecosystem for adopting innovative technology.
