A Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center education is challenging. Students progress at their own rate and level of ability. Following completion of a technical program, students are ready to step confidently into the world, believing in the dignity and worth of all work. They are committed to achieving success on the job, in college, in the military, or wherever their paths may lead. Students, upon successful completion of their technical program, can earn various industry certifications.
Many employment opportunities, both now and in the future, require technical education. Students from WMCTC can successfully advance to college with the necessary academic prerequisites. It is important to maintain a rigorous academic program at your high school to complement your technical program at WMCTC.
WMCTC is proud to be a part of the TCTW initiative in PA
(Technology Centers That Work)
The Technology Centers That Work initiative was formed in 2007 and is designed specifically to assist shared-time centers in reviewing and implementing actions needed to produce high-demand, high-wage graduates who will be leaders in their selected careers. It is based on the belief that most students can master complex academic and technical concepts if schools create an environment that encourages students to make the effort to succeed. WMCTC is a partner with your high school to provide direction and meaning to obtaining your career goal.
WMCTC is also proud to be part of SOAR
(Students Occupationally and Academically Ready)
SOAR is built on programs of study (POS) that incorporate secondary and postsecondary education elements to ensure relevant career and technical content. Students can earn college credits through statewide articulation agreements while they are still in high school by successfully completing our programs of study. SOAR programs prepare today’s student for High Priority Occupations which include career categories that are in high demand by employers, have higher skill needs, and are most likely to provide family sustaining wages.
