Volusia County Schools celebrated a momentous occasion on Monday, February 13, 2023, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Atlantic High School Auto Tech Program. The ceremony, held at the new four-bay garage located on Atlantic High School's campus at 1250 Reed Canal Road in Port Orange, was attended by students, educators, and advisory board members, which include local automotive dealerships, such as Mullinax Ford and Gary Yeomans, as well as Honest-1 Auto Care, Ford Motor Company, Carvana, NASCAR, Daytona International Speedway, Daytona State College, UTI/NASCAR Tech, and University of Northwestern Ohio.
The Auto Tech Program of Atlantic High School is a four-year career and technical education (CTE) pathway where students can engage in Automotive Maintenance and Light Repair coursework. The program culminates in a dual enrollment automotive course with Daytona State College, where students can earn up to nine ASE industry certifications for employment in the automotive industry.
The brand-new state-of-the-art classroom and the automotive garage were made possible through partnerships between Volusia County Schools and leading national automotive industry partners.
