Welcome to the Career & Technology Center

We are a state-of-the-art 235,000 square foot integrated academic and career technical educational complex that we believe is the model for 21st Century high schools.  We are located at Central Mountain High School and also have a satellite site at the Bucktail Area High School.

The Keystone Central School District has introduced and implemented an integrated career and technical curriculum that offers a totally integrated academic, career and technical education for all ninth through twelfth grade students.  The integration model allows all students, from high liberal arts concentration to traditional career bound students, to explore and attain high academic and technical skills in their chosen profession.  This system is designed to provide all students an educational exploration opportunity that is both rigorous and relevant for career and post-secondary success.

In addition to the integrated curriculum, the Career and Technical education delivery system has been overhauled and given the flexibility needed to adapt to individual student needs and academic college preparatory courses.  We now offer programs on a two or three period schedule, over a 4 year delivery system.  

We have been recognized by the National School Board Association as an exemplary model for a 21st Century high school.

We also offer our students several industry certifications and dual enrollment credits, as well as articulated credits.

Penn College Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment Opportunity Penn College NOW is a nationally accredited dual enrollment program that features Pennsylvania College of Technology courses taught by approved teachers in the home school or career and technology center.
Benefits of the Penn College NOW Program:
TIME: With college credits "in the bag," participating students can either ease their workload by taking fewer courses in a semester once at college OR complete their chosen degree more quickly.
MONEY: Since tuition is free for Penn College NOW courses, students save money by taking fewer courses to complete their chosen degree. Students can of course use their credits here at Penn College, or they can transfer their credits to a different institution.
CONFIDENCE: Students gain experience with rigorous college coursework in a supportive and familiar setting--their home school or career and technology center. They learn that they can be successful at the next level!
CONNECTION: Our Penn College NOW classrooms connect students to the "college experience." They visit campus, tour our facilities, become familiar with college-level services and resources, and are visited in their classrooms by our PC Now faculty.
All questions and concerns about the process for Penn College Dual Enrollment should be directed to the Career and Technology Office, located in E-100. You may also email Mrs. Lucas at or call at 570-893-4900 extension 4301.
