City School by Mohawk College is an innovative initiative that brings the class room to the community and allows students to try college for free. The custom-built vehicle includes a 1,000-square-foot classroom where college staff will offer pre-apprenticeship training, workshops and college credit courses for free. Students can even earn up to two free credits that apply to various Mohawk College programs. The classroom is part of Mohawk College's move to make a college education within everyone's reach and to provide access to post-secondary education. The mobile school is the first of its kind in Ontario. It received $1.6 million in funding from the province.
