CTEC students bused from their high schools
Any student academically on track to begin the school year as a junior or senior may submit an application for admission to CTEC.
Students are bused from their home high school and spend 2.5 days each week on the CTEC campus. Free transportation is provided to SKPS students, who are able to maintain identification with their home school, receive diplomas from their home high schools, and can participate in extracurricular activities and clubs. The cafeteria runs on the same points, meal plans, and free and reduced-price lunch programs as students would find at their resident schools.
Earn college credit, certifications, and internships
Students have opportunities to earn college-level credits or industry-specific certifications and licenses sought by employers. Partnerships with industry leaders link students to internships and employment.
Mentor programs, job shadows, internships, apprenticeships and online training are offered, along with an on-site career fair, career searches, resume assistance, mock interviews, public speaking and portfolio development.
