NEW! Intro to Career Technical Education Programs

New for fall 2023-2024 - enrolling in winter 2022!
Formerly Kent Transition Center programs

The Kent Transition Center programs so many families know and love are now part of Kent Career Tech Center as our Intro to Career Technical Education (CTE) Programs. 

In these year-long courses, students learn what it means to be successful employees and gain valuable skills they can use in work and in life. Like our traditional programs, students learn in the classroom and then apply their knowledge through hands-on projects in our labs. Small class sizes, plenty of support and a just-right pace help students thrive and prepare for life after high school. 

Students can choose from three Intro courses:

  • Intro to Automotive (previously KTC Automotive) 
  • Intro to Hospitality (previously KTC Hospitality/Culinary)
  • Intro to Marketing (previously KTC Retail Marketing)

Following a successful year in one of these programs, students have a selection of opportunities for their next step based on their needs and goals.

See this School News Network article for more about the Intro to Automotive program which launched in fall 2022. More information to come about each of these programs.
