Building the Future: Perry Central High’s Modular Home Project

By Brad Nelms In Manufactured Home News

Picture this: a group of high school students, armed with tools, blueprints, and a vision, constructing a modular home from scratch right inside their school. This is not your typical classroom project. It’s an adventurous leap into real-world skills, an experience that transcends traditional learning methods. These students are not just learning the fundamentals of construction; they’re living them, bringing theories and concepts to life in a way that textbooks alone could never achieve.

This project is more than just about building walls and installing fixtures; it’s about building futures and installing a sense of possibility and innovation in the minds of young learners. At Perry Central, these students are becoming the architects of their destinies, shaping their skills in a way that promises to redefine the future of the modular and manufactured home industry. 

The project at Perry Central is more than a building endeavor. It’s a pioneering case study for schools across the nation, showcasing how integrating practical skills into the curriculum can shape the future of our students and the modular and manufactured home industry. These students aren’t just building a structure; they’re crafting their futures and forging a new path in educational methodology.
