Enrollment for Fort Wayne Community Schools' fall session of driver education is under way. FWCS will offer the program from 4:15-7:15 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday Sept. 20-Oct. 27 at Anthis Automotive Center, 1219 S. Lafayette St. The courses are open to any student, whether they attend FWCS or not, who is at least 15 years old before the session begins. The student also must be currently enrolled and in good standing with a high school. The State of Indiana requires perfect attendance to receive Driver Education Certification; therefore, students with conflicts during class hours, such as extracurricular activities or jobs, should not enroll. There are no make-up classes. Students can enroll in classroom only instruction, which is $85, driving instruction and road test, which is $310, or both for $395. A deposit of $197.50 is required for registration with the other payment due before completion of program. For more information or an application, visit the FWCS Web site at www.fortwayneschools.org or call 467-1089. The next session will take place in the spring of 2012.

In high school, students can choose from the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, Project Lead the Way or New Tech Academy as well as other rigorous academic and specialty training programs.
