Welcome to Central Tech

If you are looking for a school where:

“You don’t have to fit everyone else’s idea of what you should be.” – Kenly Hurst-Witt 

“You have a bunch of people sharing common interest working toward similar goals.” – Bryce Massie

Then you’ve found your home. Welcome to Central Tech where YOU make a difference.

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

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.

Schedule
8:25a-11:15a & 12:45p-3:35p 

Short-Term

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. 

CHOICES Tuition Waiver

FREE TUITION.

High school graduates from 2020, 2021, 2022, or 2023 within the Central Tech district may be eligible for the CHOICES Tuition Waiver. Some restrictions apply.
