9th Graders Tour Career Tech
Where Career Dreams Become Reality....
We got a chance to talk to local High School 9th Graders about Program Offerings to Career Tech. They toured our campus visiting all the shop areas, and were given a taste of many different career choices. At Career Tech, we emphasize that a Career Tech education is a stepping stone to their college goals. All our programs have a college track, and many of our students go on to college in fields they started at Career Tech. We just give them the opportunity to discover what interests them, and even what doesn't.
Education + Hands-On Training = Career
