    Mingo Central Comprehensive High School is a Project Lead the Way certified school, and home to the first dual credit engineering program in West Virginia. Under a partnership with West Virginia University, students in Mingo Central's pre-engineering program enroll as students at WVU, gaining access to faculty mentors and engineering students at WVU's Morgantown, West Virginia, campus. Students can earn up to six hours of engineering credit through the program, and through a generous donation from E.L. Robinson Engineering in Charleston, West Virginia, can do so at no cost of their own.

    Local control returning

    The West Virginia Board of Education has voted to restore full control to the Mingo County Board of Education effective December 1, 2014.
