Working with the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith and industry partners, Peak offers student-focused, high-quality curriculum and career plans that meet state requirements. Peak connects students with training for in-demand occupations in a premier facility, offering hands-on classroom instruction that aligns with high school and college requirements and equipping students with stackable industry-recognized certifications and concurrent credit. The facility offers 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 businesses and industries to help fill the gap in mid-skilled employment in our region and working with our partners in adult education and higher education to ensure we create pathways to continued learning and career success for our students.
