Fort Wayne Community School will offer two sessions of Driver Education this summer at Anthis Career Center, 1200 S. Barr St.

The first session will begin June 11 and end June 29; the second session will begin July 9 and end July 27. Classroom instruction will be offered from 9:10-11:10 a.m. and 11:20 a.m.-1:20 p.m. Monday through Friday. Behind-the-Wheel instruction will take place at various times during those weeks.

The courses are open to any student, whether they attend FWCS or not, who is at least 15 years old before the session begins. The student also must be currently enrolled and in good standing with a high school. The State of Indiana requires perfect attendance to receive Driver Education Certification; therefore, students with conflicts during class hours, such as extracurricular activities or jobs, should not enroll. There are no make-up classes.

Students can enroll in classroom instruction only, which is $85, driving instruction only, which is $310, or both for $395. A deposit of $197.50 is required for registration with the other payment due before completion of program. All classes are taught by professional educators.

Every instructor is a professional educator with many years experience in the public school classroom, as well as special training in Driver Education. The program´s teaching staff has more than 400 years of combined experience.
