Preparing Students For College & Careers

A Leader in Youth Apprenticeship Programs

About DCSC

The Dane County School Consortium works collaboratively with 16 Dane County school districts and statewide programs to offer educational opportunities related to career exploration.

Mission:   To provide youth a pathway for tomorrow’s careers through the integration of learning opportunities that will connect classroom education to industry preparation.

Vision: DCSC works together with community professionals to provide learning environments and experiences that prepare individuals to perform successfully in the workplace. A commitment to excellent instruction, coupled with continuous improvement will provide students a first rate occupational training program.

Current DCSC programming include:

  • The Youth Apprenticeship program is a Wisconsin flagship opportunity managed by the Dane County Schools Consortium for schools within Dane County.
  • The Middle College program is a subcontract grant received from the Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin. Check out the Video here.
  • The Out of School Youth program is a new federal grant received from the WDBSCW as part of the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  DCSC will no longer facilitate this grant as of June 29, 2018.  Please direct all inquires to the WDBSCW.

Additionally, partnerships with schools, businesses, and community groups bring innovative programs to the academic and career success of Dane County students.
