Working with the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith and industry partners, Peak will offer student-focused and high quality curriculum and career plans that meet state requirements. Peak will connect students with training for demand occupations in a premier facility, offering hands-on classroom instruction that aligns across high school and college requirements, equipping students with stackable industry recognized certifications and concurrent credit. The facility will be able to offer on-the-job training through apprenticeships and internships, with strong mentoring and linkages to adult apprenticeships and continued education at the post-secondary level. Peak is working with business and industry to help fill the gap in mid-skilled employment in our region, and working with our partners in adult education and higher education to make sure we are creating pathways to continued learning and career success for our students.
