Students pursuing some of Yavapai College’s more unique education and career tracks can get started, catch up or get ahead this summer at the Chino Valley Agribusiness and Science Technology Center (2275 Old Home Manor Road).
The Center is offering multiple classes in a variety of academic and technical areas, including horticulture, electrical engineering, canine handling and unmanned aircraft systems.
“If you’re looking for something a little more on the wild side, that’s what we have out here,” said Dr. Karla Phillips, dean of the YC Chino Valley Center.
“Our classes are hands on with plants, animals and planes,” she said, adding that all summer classes offer credit toward various associate degrees and certificates.
Taking a summer class or two helps students explore career options or accumulate credits. “A summer class will also give students a leg up before they start the fall semester,” Phillips said.
All YC Chino Valley Center summer classes, including Monday and Wednesday evening math and online career search and creative thinking classes, are open to students countywide.
