One aspect of our Career Readiness Initiative is the Senior Work Ethic Certification (WEC) program. The certification program is not only supported by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, but also by the governor of Indiana. Earning this certificate is a way for students to demonstrate that they possess the employability and character skills needed to be successful as they enter post-secondary institutions, apprenticeships, the military, or the workforce.
