Within the next 10 years over 80% of jobs will require skills in technology.* As jobs evolve and the demand for skilled labor increases, we want to provide an opportunity for students to not only be successful but to pursue their areas of interest. The CTC offers 15 programs, ranging from marketing to culinary arts to engineering, and numerous labs for students to apply what they’re learning in the classroom. Students further explore their career areas with field trips, college visits and internships.
We’re proud to offer this unique chance for students to come together from the school districts of Blue Springs, Fort Osage, Grain Valley, Independence and Oak Grove and delve into career and technical education. Explore our website, stop by our Fall Expo for a visit and please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to working with you and your student on their pathway to success!
