Real Life, Real Learning.    


Get ready to experience an entirely different way of learning. Kent Career Tech Center takes project-based learning to a whole new level. By integrating the learning environment with real-world applications, we arm students with knowledge and experience they can apply directly to college and career. Get started here!

KCTC is supporting the green initiative.  Report cards will now be available electronically.  Just sign in to your PowerSchool account to view your student's grades and attendance at any time.  If you would still like to receive a paper report card, sign in to PowerSchool's parent portal and select "No" for the electronic report card under forms.

Inclement Weather - School Delays/Closings Alerts

In the event that KCTC is closed due to inclement weather it will be posted on the normal GRAIL system which is displayed on the local TV stations and in addition we will be sending a message via our SchoolMessenger system. This message will be sent to the contact information that is in PowerSchool.  This may be a good time to sign in to the PowerSchool Portal and make sure that the contact information is correct.  This will also be posted on the website.
