The MTC High School Experience

Marchman Technical College provides students a unique hands-on learning experience.  Students learn content standards and employability skills to help them become college, career and life ready.  Our classrooms and labs simulate real-world learning experiences.  9th and 10th grade students are enrolled in one period of coursework and engage in introductory technical skills.  11th and 12th grade students are enrolled in three periods of coursework which allows more time for intensive hands-on learning.

 

Career Dual Enrollment

Fred K. Marchman Technical College offers Career Dual Enrollment college courses to 11th and 12th grade high school students.  Career Dual Enrollment courses provide rigorous coursework, preparing students for college, career, and life, while accelerating educational opportunities. 

The following Career Certificate Programs are considered Career Dual Enrollment courses:

Career Dual Enrollment students will attend their Career Certificate Program for three periods a day and earn three grades as well.   Students will have the same expectations as the adult students in maintaining a 2.0 or higher GPA, maintaining a 95% attendance rate, and demonstrating a high level of employability skills.  Students must also maintain on-track status for high school graduation.  Failure to maintain 95% attendance can affect students’ financial aid eligibility as an adult student at MTC.

Students who earn the required amount of program clock hours and who meet satisfactory academic performance to successfully complete Career Dual Enrollment courses can earn elective credits toward high school graduation requirements, Industry Certifications, and a Certificate of Completion in their Career Certificate Program.  Some programs may be completed as a high school student; others may require students to apply as an adult after graduation to complete the program hours. 

Career Dual Enrollment students will save money with free tuition and textbooks as well as save time toward their adult programs if they need to return to complete their training. Earned clock hours may also transfer as credit hours to state colleges depending on the institution.

 

Home Education and Private School Students 

Students enrolled in Home Education and those attending private schools may apply for Dual Enrollment programs as 11th and 12th grade students. The Career Certificate Program Application for Home Education Students opens annually. 11th and 12th grade students are enrolled in three periods of coursework which allows more time for intensive hands-on learning.   

 

Industry Certifications

High school students will have the opportunity to earn Industry Certifications in each program. Industry Certifications are credentials recognized by businesses and industries measuring mastery in knowledge, competencies, and skills.
