Monroe County Career Technical Center offers Business Marketing, Cooperative Education, Health Science, Cosmetology, Agriscience, Environmental and Natural Resources, and Industrial Engineering Technology.
This school year, credentialing of 12th grade students will be offered in all programs. Credentialing is recognized nationwide, and gives students an opportunity to present certificates to employers which state they have been trained and are highly qualified for specific jobs. This school year, we will offer the following credentialing: , Hunter Education in AgriScience, WorkKeys in Cooperative Education, Adult/Child CPR and AED and Infant CPR, First Aid, and Certified Nursing Assistant, Barbicide in Cosmetology, National Center for Construction Education and Research in Industrial Engineering Technology, Key Train in Business Marketing and Cooperative Education, IT Academey in Business Marketing, and Landscape Management in Agriscience.
In addition, the Monroe County Career and Technical Center has established articulation agreements and partnership with postsecondary institutions, which will allow for a seamless transition for students pursuing opportunities for continued education. To assist with this process, Kuder is utilized by students in 7th through 12th grades in Monroe County schools.
The faculty and administration of Monroe County Career Technical Center believe that students must keep abreast of the rapid changes in business and industry by offering students a rigorous array of coursework to help prepare them for advanced learning and a wide range of career opportunities. Picnic tables, shooting houses, and cardio-treadmills are a few of the many live projects that are built by our students in the Agriscience-Construction class. These items are sold to the public, and the proceeds are used to benefit their club, the Future Farmers of America (FFA). Our philosophy is to prepare youth for entry-level employment in a specific occupational field, or for future education appropriate to the student's occupational objective. "Our goal at MCCTC is "Building Careers & Preparing Futures".
