How does Tech Prep work?
Tech Prep courses align Career and Technical Education classes at the high school with Professional-Technical courses offered at Everett Community College. The Tech Prep program creates an opportunity for students to earn both high school credits for graduation while earning college credit. EvCC's Tech Prep program is accessible to ALL high school students with no costs involved. Because there is no charge for college tuition and students do not need to purchase textbooks or provide transportation, the savings for students, parents and taxpayers is significant. Tech Prep is an ideal opportunity for students.
By establishing a history of earning college credit and gaining a solid foundation of skills and knowledge in a comprehensive program of study, students are more aware of their education, career opportunities and are better prepared to make sound decisions that lead to success in education. Tech Prep also gives students a jump-start on earning a professional or technical degree or certificate.
EvCC's career-technical education initiative is an approach to learning that acknowledges the fact that students learn best when they learn by doing. Whether students are planning to attend college, get post-secondary training or enter the workplace after high school, career-technical education teaches strategies and activities that promote high academic performance and practical learning. Through various district level programs, Tech Prep offers students to a wide range of academic and career areas, including technology, science, health and safety, communications, business and industry and the Arts.
