Eastern Ohio Shale Academy prepares youth for industry

The Utica Shale Academy, located within Southern Local Schools in Columbiana County, is about to graduate its first student. Austin Sadler, the only senior in the academy, completes high school in several months with a diploma and three certifications for the oil and shale industry: Rig Pass, which is for safety; Drilling Instructors Training; and Well Controlled Certification.

Barely a year old, Utica Shale Academy is a blended-learning, charter school.  Traditional course work aligned to Ohio’s Academic Content Standards is provided by the Jefferson County Educational Service Center Virtual Learning Academy.  Industry-based curriculum is endorsed by the International Association of Drilling Contractors with materials from the Ohio Oil and Gas Education Energy Program.

An advisory board serves to give the academy added insight into the oil and gas industry and to prepare for changes in the job market.  According to the Academy’s Web site (www.uticashaleschool.com), Ohio employs more than 178,000 people in the industry, which is still in the drilling stage.
