Technical School (BCCTC)

Beaver County Career & Technical Center
The mission of the BCCTC is to prepare graduates to be well-trained technicians, ready for the workplace of today and tomorrow, aware of the world around them and prepared for the changing technology.

The Beaver County CTC is dedicated to providing programs consisting of high quality, cutting-edge technical training integrated with a strong academic education and an emphasis on critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and team-building skills. The curriculum is closely tied to the needs of business and industry. Through twice-yearly Craft Committee meetings, advisors guide program development to assure that the curriculum and equipment match the needs and standards of employers. Employers tell us what skills are needed for success in their fields and those are the skills we teach. Instructors align course curriculums with the skills employers need for employees to be successful.

Students who have an interest and desire to pursue career or technical education should contact their sending school counselor, who will then work closely with the Beaver County CTC Director of Student Services to facilitate the enrollment process. When needed, the Beaver County CTC Director of Student Services is prepared to assist students in the preparation of their application to a Beaver County CTC program.

All students apply for admission through their sending school and receive their diploma from their sending school district. A certificate of completion from the Beaver County CTC will be presented to students who have successfully completed their curriculum at our graduation ceremony. There are a limited number of students accepted into a program to allow for individualized, high-skilled instruction. To be considered for enrollment, students should have their application on file at the Beaver County CTC as early as possible. Entry into a class is determined on a first come, first serve basis.

Tuition-free public education is provided to high school students through the tax support of citizens and businesses from each of the fourteen Beaver County school districts. The programs offered at Beaver County CTC are elective and some of the programs require that students purchase uniforms. For some programs, there are fees for items that the student will keep, such as a tool kit or books.
