Blue River Career Programs (BRCP) is an Area Career & Technical Education School Corporation (Inter-Local). The student body is comprised of students from the 4 school corporations in Shelby County. They represent Morristown High School, Waldron High School, Southwestern High School, Triton High School, and Shelbyville High School.
Blue River Career Programs was formed in 1972 in response to the needs of the community to prepare students for current and emerging careers. Since that time, programs within the career center have changed, evolved, been added, or outdated programs eliminated, with the continuous goal of providing training for careers that are primarily in high demand and high wage fields.
For the 2014-2015 school year, Diesel Technology and Criminal Justice have been added. A new Culinary Arts facility, which will be ready for occupancy by August, 2015, and currently being developed on site.
Blue River Career Programs currently offers 17 programs for high school students. Most of the BRCP high school programs offer dual college credits through Ivy Tech or
Vincennes University. Most offer industry certifications, thus preparing students for college and career pathways.
Funding for these secondary programs comes directly from the sending school corporations. Additionally, there is a very strong Adult Basic Education (ABE) program offered that encompasses the High School Equivalency (HSE ) class, English as a Second Language (ESL), and a multitude of certificated adult training programs.
Collaborative education and training opportunities with community stakeholders continue to be the basis of our educational philosophy and efforts at BRCP.
