February Is CTE Month

Time to Sign up for Next Year

By CRTC Director Steve Rothenberg

Over the past month and into February, the CRTC is in high gear to help students explore and potentially sign up for the CRTC for the 2018/19 school year.  The process is outlined on our website and it specifically invo

lves an application that is due before February Break.  Our main target audience is current sophomores, but some freshman and juniors do apply and are accepted.  Major dates:
February 6 and 7: Program Preview Days  Students come to visit our programs during their school day for a couple of hours. They visit their top two programs of choice to get a genuine experience of what the class is like. Students also attend a short assembly.  Students who expressed interest will get a formal invitation in one of their regular classes beforehand.

February 15 and 20 at 6:30 PM: Parent/Guardian Open House Nights Parents/guardians are invited to come for an evening to learn more about the opportunities the CRTC can offer their students. The night begins with a short presentation by Director Steve Rothenberg and then parents will be able to pick the top three programs they would like to visit for 15 minutes each.

February 13, 15, 19 and 20: Classroom Visitations  Students who would like to get a better feeling of the CRTC are welcome to come back for a full 90 minute class visit to get a better feel of what the class is like.

Our job, during this window, is to provide students and parent/guardians every possible ounce of information to help them make the best choice.  Our teachers offer their time during this window to meet one on one to further assist.  Ultimately our focus is to help students develop themselves so they are prepared to stand out to colleges, industry, military, and funders.
