Great Lakes Boat Building School (GLBBS) continues to monitor and assess the situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). GLBBS’ first and foremost concern revolves around student and staff health. Effective March 16, 2020, in an effort to reduce human interactions and potential spread of the virus, GLBBS will remain closed to the general public until further notice.

For High School Graduates

Our favorite question at GLBBS is “What will you build next?”  Skills?  A career?

You either just graduated or you will soon – why else would you be out here looking for your next step?  We get it. Your time in high school has helped you become who you are today…it has undoubtedly helped prepare you for life. But it isn’t the end…and when the questions start rolling in from parents and well-meaning relatives about “What’s next for you?”, you may not have the answers.

Does the thought of spending another four years in a traditional classroom make you cringe?  Doesn’t racking up a ton of student debt seem irresponsible? Wouldn’t it be great if there was an alternative to college?

There is and its called Great Lakes Boat Building School.
