BUSINESS EDUCATION & HIGHER EDUCATION
Mason County communities place a high value on life-long learning, which is evident in the variety of educational options and resources for children, teens and adults. Just as important are the involvement and support from individuals, community organizations, business and industry. The extraordinary natural resources of Lake Michigan, inland lakes, rivers, forests, farmland, and the history of the area are woven into learning opportunities making for very rich and dynamic experiences for all.
