College or Career?

Choose PLCC and Be Ready For Both

Education is all about options and PLCC is a great option! Now is the time to start planning your future. You have many choices to explore and decisions to make that are right for you and your future.


At PLCC, our vision is to provide Extraordinary Experiences.  Every Student. Every Day


Sitting in desks in not the defining atmosphere at Portage Lakes Career Center. Half of your day will be spent in high-tech labs participating in projects that matter. From welding a dirt bike, to running a restaurant, our students run businesses, design, repair, program, and are fully engaged in 21st Century Learning.


In November, Sophomore’s from PLCC’s four partner schools will have several opportunities to explore all that PLCC has to offer. Representatives from PLCC will meet with every 10th grader from the four partner districts to discuss the benefits of Career & Technical Education, followed by Sophomore Visitation Days where the students will visit PLCC and have a focused visit in three programs of their choice.  


Following the visit days, parents are invited to bring their student back for a Career Exploration Open House.  Career Tech Tuesdays are an additional way a student can see first-hand what a program is like by shadowing for half of a day.

Schedule a Tour

We take pride in our facility and welcome the opportunity to show it off!  You would never buy a car without looking at it first.  Choosing the place to give you a head start on a successful path in life should be no different.  We invite you to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus.  We’re pretty sure you’ll be impressed!

If you are a high school student, please note that you will have several opportunities to visit PLCC during your sophomore year.
