About Mingo Extended Learning Center

  • Mingo Extended Learning Center is located south of the town of Delbarton WV on Route 52 at 165 Bulldog Boulevard. The center was formally known as Mingo County Vocational School and Mingo Career & Technical Center. It housed the secondary and adult technical education programs. In the school calendar year 2011-2012 the secondary technical education programs were moved into the new Mingo Comprehensive High School.

    This facility has been operated and funded by Mingo County Schools since 1969. The building had an addition section  built on in 1982. This facilty houses the Adult Technical Education programs, High School Equivalency Testing Lab for HSEA-CBT (computer based testing), Alternative Education, and Audiology Testing. Our Adult Education Programs include: Licensed Practical Nursing, Medical Office Technology, EKG, and Phlebotomy.
