STUDENT SERVICES

We want you to succeed in school and in life. That’s why Central Tech offers a set of services that benefits not only current students and clients but also members of the public.

Full-time students, enrolled in courses 600 hours and over, at Central Tech have access to financial aid, grants, and scholarships to help cover the cost of training while the Turning Point program helps students graduate with their diploma instead of a GED.

Please review our variety of services below.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available at Central Tech to provide assistance to students who, without such aid, would not be able to attend school.

Scholarships

Learn what scholarships and tuition assistance opportunities are available to you.

Academics

STEM classes serve as excellent preparatory classes for the college-bound student.

Students can take classes previously failed at their high school in order to have the credits needed for graduation. Call 918.352.4117 for a list of approved classes.

If you are interested in our assistance, let your instructor know. We will coordinate a time to work with you.

ASSISTANCE RETURNING TO WORK

If you need assistance to prepare for, obtain, keep or return to work due to a disability, Employment Services may help expand your employment opportunities. This unique service provides employability skills training and support to those members of the community who have been diagnosed with a mental, physical, or learning disability.

Services are available to people in our district. If you would like more information about these services, contact Shelly Rentz at 918.227.9260.

Job Fairs

We prepare 1,000 full-time students for careers annually. Approximately one-half of these students graduate each spring.

Our job fairs are one way Central Tech maintains a mid-90’s job placement rate and demonstrates our commitment to uniting employers with skilled employees to build a better workforce.
