The foundation of EACC’s curriculum is Indiana’s Next Level Programs of Study. Each program of study contains a 4-course sequence that progresses from general to specific:
- Principles Course
- Concentrator A
- Concentrator B
The principles course sets the foundation for a career pathway and includes content that is applicable to multiple, closely related programs of study. Through the concentrator courses, students acquire the core occupational skills needed for a particular occupation. After completion of the principles and concentrator coursework, students can participate in work-based learning as their capstone. Principle and concentrator courses are embedded into Year 1 curriculum and instruction, while students in Year 2 can continue to grow through additional classroom instruction and work-based learning.
Program curriculum is also guided by each program’s Advisory Board - a group of local industry experts who help ensure that programming is applicable to ever-changing local industry needs.
