Education/Training Opportunities



Parke County is home to two school corporations - North Central Parke Community School Corporation & Southwest Parke Community School Corporation.  Over 2200 students attend one of seven area schools.

Many outstanding institutions of higher education, including three Big Ten universities, draw students to West Central Indiana from around the nation and many foreign countries. These institutions stand ready to partner with business and industry in developing problem-solving technology, serving as incubators for start-ups, providing advanced on-site training programs and helping to produce a well-educated and adaptable workforce.

Workforce training and development opportunities are readily available through West Central ISBDC & WorkOne of Western Indiana.
