Our Goal is to help students take the first steps toward a college career.

High school students have the opportunity to get a jump start on their career by preparing for a college technical degree program at their local high school. They can earn BOTH high school AND college credit (this is called DUAL CREDIT) for completing select high school courses with a grade of “B” (3.0) or better. Register with Tech Prep College Connections to earn college credit for your class!

Benefits

  • How Can Earning Credit for CTE Classses Help Me?

    *All students are required to take a full year minimium of CTE classes while in high school - why not earn college credit for it?

    *Career & Technical Education classes prepare students for high-skill, high-wage careers

    *80% of 21st century jobs will demand more knowledge and higher levels of skill, requiring technical training after high school, but not a 4-year degree

    *Tech Prep links high school classes to current college courses that lead to college degrees and professional or technical careers

    *Tech Prep allows students to earn college credits as they explore career options at their own high school

    *Tech Prep credit looks good on a resume, and can save students substantial time & money!

Testimonial

"The last several years I have been fortunate to have Tech Prep at my high school. All of these classes most definitely helped me in my career choice, but also helped me gain credit in college before actually going to college.

I'm starting Bellevue Community College with over 12 credits, which helped me financially, plus I have the opportunity to graduate earlier than my peers. Thank you Tech Prep!

Testimonial

"I have had three sons take advantage of the Tech Prep program. The credits they have received have given them some breathing room in their freshman schedule and saved me a substantial amount of money...it is a wonderful program that I would encourage everyone to take advantage of."

"Tech Prep courses not only saved me thousands of dollars but also prepared me for college level courses while allowing me to take classes on campus and stay involved in my high school."
