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.
