Central Tech offers two types of classes. Full-time and Short-term.

Our students appreciate Central Tech’s inviting atmosphere, close proximity to home, and low-cost advantage. If cost is an issue, check out scholarships and tuition waivers.


Full-time classes typically follow the traditional class schedule of August-May. High school students attend half a day and tuition-free. Adults can attend morning, afternoon, or all day.

8:25a-11:15a & 12:45p-3:35p 


The majority of Adult Career Development (ACD) classes can be completed in eight weeks or less and are offered during the weekdays, evenings, and occasionally on weekends to meet your busy lifestyle. 


We are Central Tech.
