Construction of NIACC Charles City Career Academy Starts This Month

Construction of the new Career Academy at the NIACC Center in Charles City is expected to start in mid-April.

After first planning to build a new facility on the Floyd County Fairgrounds, rising construction costs forced NIACC to consider other options. Ultimately, they decided to add on to the south side of their existing Charles City NIACC Center, just east of Hy-Vee.

NIACC President Dr. Steve Schulz says he received the construction timeline last week from Woodruff Construction of Waterloo to begin April 17th. 

The construction timeline indicates a target completion date of March 29, 2024. 

Adding the career academy onto the existing building will eventually mean closing off access to the current NIACC center. However, Schulz says they will still offer classes.

In addition to Charles City, the Career Academy partnership also includes the Nashua-Plainfield, Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock, Riceville, North Butler, Clarksville and Osage school districts. 

Schultz says they will begin offering courses to students in the areas of health, information technology, constructions and advanced manufacturing with the start of the school year in August 2024.
