Moraine Park Technical College has a longstanding commitment to providing accessible, affordable and quality education. We know that the technical education we provide here will enrich our students, and in turn, will enrich the workforce and our communities.
Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you like practicing intercultural communication skills? Do you wish to expand your knowledge about different viewpoints on family, food, education, success, gender roles, and even religion in a safe, respectful environment?
You may be thinking, “WOW, that sounds interesting!” Our students at Moraine Park Technical College are doing just that!
Who should get tutoring? Isn’t it just for people who are doing poorly in their courses?
Anyone can benefit from tutoring! Tutoring can help maintain or improve a grade as well as make the difference between passing and failing a course. It can help students ease anxiety about difficult courses, deepen understanding and retention of course content, and help develop more effective study skills.
How can a tutor help me?
Your tutor will work with you to help understand where you are having difficulty. A tutor can help you gain new perspectives on your learning by asking questions, explaining concepts in different ways, sharing examples and resources, suggesting study strategies, providing encouragement, and more.
Moraine Park Technical College is committed to and proud of our veteran and military students. For eight straight years, Moraine Park has made Victory Media’s list of Military Friendly Schools for its commitment in serving veterans as students—with benefits for student veterans such as on-campus veterans programs, credit for service, and military spouse programs.
To continue our close work with military students and their families, Moraine Park is excited to partner with the Community College of these Air Force (CCAF) to offer the General Education Mobile (GEM) Program. Participating in the General Education Mobile (GEM) enables CCAF students to fulfill their general education requirements towards an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science.
This opportunity allows Airmen to take advantage of Moraine Park’s excellent online coursework with several general education options. The following are options for this specific program:
“We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win. “ John F. Kennedy
President Kennedy spoke these words in 1962 to challenge the nation that we need to keep pace with the technological challenges of that time with other nations and added a boost to our competitive nature.
Students share their thoughts about new MPTC General Education course:
Thinking Critically & Creatively using Telepresence technology
This semester a new course – Thinking Critically & Creatively – is being offered as a General Education Social Science course option for students because employers continue to emphasize the need for teaching critical and creative thinking skills. Students are able to simultaneously participate in this course via the Telepresence technology by attending class at any campus location – Fond du Lac, West Bend, and Beaver Dam during the scheduled class time on Fridays from 12:30 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.
Moraine Park Technical College held its 25th Annual GED/HSED Graduation Ceremony on June 1. For the 2016-17 school year, 109 students received their General Education Development (GED) and High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) certificates.
Two of these individuals served as student speakers at the graduation event -– Danielle Patzan of North Fond du Lac and Lisa Stoffel of West Bend -– and each reflected on vastly different journeys that led them to this point.
We hosted our 2017 GED / HSED graduation ceremony on June 1 at Moraine Park Technical College.
We’re so proud of all the hard work each of these individuals has put in to accomplish this goal!
