All programs are state CTE approved courses that fulfill certain graduation requirements.   An additional benefit is the concurrent enrollment credit opportunities through Iowa Western Community College.  As part of the Council Bluffs Community School District we focus on providing quality educational opportunities for our students.

Throughout our programs we provide our student s opportunities to help them develop the following Tucker Career & College Center S.K.I.L.L.S. in becoming life-long, collaborative learners:
  • Self-Determination
  • Knowledge
  • Integrity
  • Leadership Attributes
  • Long-Range Goals

When a student demonstrates one or more of these traits they are recognized and honored for their achievement.  It is our mission that all of our students achieve all of these S.K.I.L.L.S. by the time they graduate from high school.
