The automotive training program at Burnsville High School has received ASE Training Program accreditation in Maintenance and Light Repair by the ASE Education Foundation. 

To achieve this coveted recognition, the school’s automotive training program underwent rigorous evaluation by the ASE Education Foundation. Nationally accepted standards of excellence in areas such as instruction, facilities and equipment were used.

“This is great news for automotive-minded young people and their parents,” said Michael Coley, ASE Education Foundation President. “Because this program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, it gives added assurance that Burnsville graduates will be employable entry-level technicians. As a result of the quality education provided by Burnsville High School, the motoring public will benefit since better repair technicians will join the work force.” 

The automotive repair program at Burnsville High School is part of the school’s Pathways model, which is designed to help students find their passion and prepare for success after graduation by providing opportunities to earn college credit and industry certifications without having to leave the school campus.
