Career Technical Centre

Welcome to CTC!

The Career Technical Centre program is a partnership between the College of New Caledonia and School District No. 57. This partnership allows high school students to have a unique opportunity during Grades 11 and 12. Students in select school districts can take a course at the college while earning dual credits, graduating with both their Grade 12 and their first year of technical training. Imagine graduating high school with one year of college already completed!

“CTC will give [anyone] an advantage in life that many students [can] only dream of.” Rob Bacon, CTC graduate

The education provided to high school students through the CTC program is the same college education that can ladder directly to further post-secondary training. Students receive both high school elective credits and college credits in their program of choice. These college credits are also transferable to dozens of post-secondary institutions throughout Canada and elsewhere.
