Am I eligible to attend?

Students are eligible to attend if they live in one of the seven Montcalm County school districts.  Some students in the Belding school district can also attend IF they get approval from Belding and the MACC program is not offered at the Ionia County Career Center.

How do I apply to attend the MACC?
Our application opens on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving each year. Here is the web address to apply: Montcalm Area Career Center Application, You can also ask your high school counselor.
Attendance Policy

Good attendance is a priority shared by all employers. The MACC provides students with career awareness and technical skills training leading to employment or continuing education. Therefore, we believe good attendance is critical. Frequent absences prevent learning the skills necessary to be a world-class employee. Good attendance is very important for job placement eligibility, resumes, and performance certificates. 

When would I attend class?
In person, Monday through Friday during the school year.
AM class meets from 8:00 am – 10:30 am
PM class meets from 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Is it possible to come for a visit and see the program(s) I might be interested in?

Who can attend the MACC?

After students apply, their school counselor will conduct a credit audit to determine if they need to make up credits to graduate. If students are granted permission from their local district, they will be able to attend as long as there is space available in their chosen program.  

Can homeschoolers attend?

Absolutely! We have had many successful homeschool students.
