Mission of Central Campus

 Central Campus complements and extends the programs of Central Iowa Schools, offering unique academic and career opportunities that direct, inspire, and motivate a diverse group of students. Our mission is to ensure students possess the knowledges, skills, and abilities needed to be successful at the next stage of their lives.   

 Central Campus serves as the Premier Regional Academy within the Des Moines Public Schools. Over two thousand students from dozens of Iowa High Schools participate in our Advance Career Training Programs. We provided career and academic planning to support high school students as they prepare for their postsecondary lives. In addition, Central Campus students have the opportunity to earn community college credit at no extra cost. 

 Central Campus offers hands-on, real world work-based educational programs to a highly diverse community and surrounding areas. One of our greatest strengths is the friendships and networking with our community business partners. Central Campus commits itself to providing equal access, through rigorous academic and career training experiences for all of its students. 

 Central Campus is truly the place where Learning Leads to Earning!
