ECTS students learn through real world experiences, connecting with professionals, and earning industry certifications and college credits, which gives them an edge over their peers.


Parents can play an important role in the career planning of their child. A technical education is a viable option for 3 of every 4 teenagers. Parents are invited and encouraged to explore the value of a career and technical education.


Providing a quality career and technical education requires the involvement of many people, from guidance counselors, to school board directors, to business owners. Connecting all of these partners is a priority at the technical school.


Employers are important customers for career and technical education. An employer who is satisfied with an ECTS student means that student received the right training. That is exactly our aim!
