DMTC revives academy classes

The current school calendar that features six weeks of classes, followed by one-week breaks, once included "academy" sessions with fun, unique courses for students of all ages. Courses such as beginning guitar, scuba certification, photography and cooking were offered during the academy weeks in October, February and April. Some academies included field trips and sports camps.

While the calendar has endured, the academies were offered just a few years.

This year, however, the staff at Delta-Montrose Technical College has decided to revive the academy concept with classes for seventh grade and up. There are several -- Cooking Quick Meals, Critical Thinking, Homemade Candies, Sweets and Treats, Job Hunting and Music Production. Fees vary depending upon the class.

"People remember how awesome those academy week classes were," said Sheryl Williams, who is in charge of extended studies at Delta-Montrose Technical College. "Since the academy idea was such a positive thing, we thought why not offer some classes during October break, where students could come out for three half days or three full days to take classes that would be interesting to them."
