Tech Campus Contact
In November of 1972, Superintendents from Lake County Schools met to discuss the need for a new vocational center. A referendum was held and passed in December of 1973, and groundbreaking began July 10, 1975. On September 1, 1977, thirty-three buses from nineteen participating high schools transported 1,230 students to the Lake County Area Vocational Center for the first day of classes.
Students enroll at the campus on an elective basis in their junior and senior years from each local high school. The Technology Campus has served nearly 42,000 students since opening its doors. The present enrollment of 1,590 students is drawn from a countywide 9th–12th grade enrollment base for the participating districts of approximately 19,000 students.
