**PLEASE NOTE:  For the 2020-2022 school year shadowing is being conducted virtually.**       

Students interested in applying to a CTC program must first schedule a shadow experience for the program(s) they would like to apply for.  Students are encouraged to select a program to shadow by talking with their high school counselor or by checking out the programs on our CTC web site. Shadowing is mandatory for applying to any program offered at CTC. During the shadow experience students can expect to meet with the instructor and other students interested in the program, as well as possibly students currently enrolled in that program. Students are able to ask questions about the program and hear the expectations of the instructor.   The shadow experience is also a part of the acceptance criteria.  To learn more about the acceptance criteria check out the Frequently Asked Questions.  

The shadowing and application process begins in November each year and runs through February.  Students may shadow and apply at anytime during that period.  Shadowing and applications will be accepted after February only for programs that still have open seats.  

After completing the online Shadow Request Form students will receive an email from the CTC School Counseling Office with the date and time of their virtual shadow experience, along with the Google Meet Code needed to access the virtual shadow experience.  Emails are sent to FCPS student email accounts.  

Please see our FAQs page for more information on the shadow, application and acceptance process at CTC.

Please remember you MUST shadow a program before Applying.

Applications that are made without a shadow experience will not be considered.
