COLLEGE CONNECTIONS TECH PREP

Our Goal is to help students take the first steps toward a college career.
Tech Prep Welding Student

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 community/technical college credit (this is called DUAL CREDIT) for completing select high school courses with a grade of “B” (3.0) or better, at NO COST to the students or parents!

Benefits

  • Tech Prep prepares students for high-skill, high-wage careers.
  • Tech Prep links high school and college education courses to professional technical careers.
  • 80% of 21st century jobs will demand more knowledge and higher levels of skill requiring technical training after high school, but not necessarily a 4-year degree.
  • Tech Prep allows students to explore a career and earn college credits while in high school.
  • Tech Prep credit can help students qualify for scholarships and gain work experience.
