Byrkit High ERC is an interlocal high school, serving students from the School City of Mishawaka and Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation. Our mission is to provide each student with the resources and support necessary to successfully complete a high school diploma, develop life skills, and obtain marketable work skills through active participation and a co-operative education experience. A learning environment is one where personal best is expected. We believe that students are individuals worthy of everyone's time and effort for success. Instruction is based on student needs. Courses are completed when the student achieves 80% mastery. Each student has an individual educational employability plan based on graduation requirements, results on academic achievement assessments, and career goals. Long Distance Learning is used by students and staff to provide information and resources not otherwise available. Partnerships are developed between students, school personnel, an adult in the student's life, and the student's employer. A spirit of cooperation exists between Byrkit High ERC, the school corporations, Simon Youth Foundation, University Park Mall, and more than 30 businesses that employ our students.
