Shaping our future
“We are fortunate to live in a community that values education. Students are offered a varied and rigorous curriculum that prepares them well for wherever life takes them.” – Leslie Fernung, Community Foundation
Home to Purdue University and its 40,000 students, Ivy Tech Community College – Lafayette, three public school corporations and numerous private institutions, education in Greater Lafayette begins at accredited early childhood learning centers, continues at highly ranked P-12 schools and formally concludes with students earning skill certifications and university degrees.
Education and training extend well beyond those traditional years, too. Workforce development initiatives tailored to the newest and emerging technologies, leadership courses and exploratory learning opportunities all give residents opportunities to be informed, master new knowledge, and to learn a little... or a lot.
