Expediency / Convenience
Flexibility, opportunity, and choice are key. Butler offers convenience and flexibility, including locations in the outlying communities. For those students who struggle with not having the time to come to campus or physically attend classes, Butler delivers "distance education" via these locations and online classes.
The Early College Academy concept introduces the college learning experience to high school juniors and seniors. Currently the academies consist of Health Sciences, Information Technology, Engineering Technology, Business / Entrepreneurship and Public Safety. The academies are located in and around Butler County. Propel your career forward and take college credit in high school while immersing yourself in the college experience!
