The 4T hub

The name 4T stands for each of the school mascots Tigers (Princeton Community High School), Trojans (Wood Memorial High School), Titans (Gibson Southern High School), and Toyota.

4T Academy is a perfect option for students that are interested in expanding their skills in STEM. This program will give students the opportunity to learn the basic and technological skills needed for working in a manufacturing environment, from line workers to managers and engineers.  

The goal is to help connect upper-level students in three high schools in the county with career opportunities in advanced manufacturing. By collaborating with local schools, we are creating a workforce solution—but, more importantly—providing greater visibility to student career options and pathways in the region.

The 4T curriculum includes classes on manufacturing, engineering, computer science, precision machining, Industrial automation & robotics, industrial maintenance and environmental sustainability. The high school-based advanced manufacturing curriculum is also dual credited by Ivy Tech. And as a part of the 4T program, students will also participate in hand-on job training at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana.
