The Advanced Technical Center

Welcome to the Advanced Technical Center

Gardener Edgerton High School

Career and Technical College Prep

This program is for high school students enrolled in articulated technical programs which may also include JCCC advanced standing college credit. Instruction is provided on the high school campus. Many career programs may offer advanced standing credit at JCCC.

High school counselors or the JCCC Technical College Preparation coordinator can help determine the courses that may apply. Advanced standing credit will be given for a final grade of “C” or better. The Technical College program emphasizes planning for options by teaching skills that will be needed in the future. These skills include higher math competencies and an understanding of the scientific base of technology. With this program, students will be able to move into a four-year college program through the community college.

NOTE: Technical College courses are accepted at JCCC but not transferred to all four-year colleges. Please consult a counselor for further information. The student who successfully completes three full credits from one pathway series of classes below will be recognized as a Career and Technical Education (CTE) concentrator.
