Applying to CTC
Applying to CTC is a competitive application process that involves both your high school and CTC. It is a fair process that includes reviewing your application, grades, attendance and shadow evaluation form. Some programs have pre-requisites and additional acceptance criteria. Specific course information is outlined in the individual program descriptions and in the FCPS course guide.
The shadowing & application process begins in November each year and runs through the end of February. Applications are accepted at any time during that time period. If you are accepted into a CTC program you will receive comfirmation directly from the Career & Technology Center.
IMPORTANT: A shadow experience is required in order to apply. CLICK HERE for more information on shadowing and to request a shadow.
More details regarding the application process can be found in the FAQs.
