Community Campus is a partnership that identifies projected educational needs in our community and develops college-level programs for advanced high school students in response. Joint high school and college credit is embedded in each academy within Community Campus, including the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Engineering and Biomedical Sciences academies. PLTW Engineering is offered at Apollo High School and PLTW Biomedical Science is offered on Owensboro Community and Technical College’s Main Campus. Project Lead the Way complements traditional college-preparatory academic studies with challenging career/technical studies, providing students with hands-on exposure to real-life engineering or biomedical challenges.
