GCS to Expand College Tech Prep Programs in 2013
The students in Anna Marshall's animal science class may be one step closer to a career in veterinary medicine next year. A new veterinary technician program offered at Southeast High will build on the classes they have already taken in animal science through the district's College Tech Prep program.
The veterinary technician program is one of two new College Tech Prep (CTP) programs GCS will offer next year; students can also enroll in logistics courses next year at Western High.
Parents and students can learn more about College Tech Prep at the CTP Showcase on Thursday, Feb. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Weaver Academy, 300 S. Spring St., Greensboro.
"The CTP Showcase gives families a chance to hear about the program's benefits and how it can help them in their chosen career path," says Bob Gantt, director of Career and Technical Education for GCS. "These students are using their time in high school to learn skills that will help them find jobs in a variety of in-demand, high-wage fields."
College Tech Prep is a course of study that combines traditional academics with a focused career pathway in one of 13 areas, including information technology, health science, hospitality and advanced manufacturing. Many College Tech Prep students earn college credit or career certifications while in high school.
In 2012, 51.3 percent of the GCS high school graduates completed a CTP course of study. That same year, GCS students earned 3,190 industry standard certifications.
