Career Academy Adult Program

Are you interested in advancing in your current occupation or in gaining new skills to join the workforce? In an effort to connect adult learners with career and technical-focused education, Indian Hills is opening the doors of the Keokuk County & Mahaska County Career Academies for the Career Academy Adult Program (CAAP).


The CAAP program works in cooperation with our two academies, providing personalized programming to meet the needs of the community by training students with hands-on education to align them with career opportunities. While the Academies offer this programming to high school juniors and seniors, adult members of the community can now take advantage of these educational opportunities, as well, through CAAP.


The Mahaska County Career Academy in Oskaloosa connects students to an education in Advanced Manufacturing and Computer Networks & Security. The Keokuk County Career Academy provides career focused education in: Associate Degree Nursing/Practical Nursing, Computer Information Technology, Entrepreneurship, Machine Technology, and Welding.

Classes are conveniently offered in the morning and afternoon to students of all ages. Open seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
