Students & Parents

How can we help you? Our primary role is to ….. Help our students and visitors DREAM!

In reality, our goal is to help you find your career interests and ultimately best program “fit” here at KCTC! If you become a student here and love what you are doing in your program, chances are you will find this will become a part of your career plan and could be a start to a very fulfilling and successful future! We get over 4,000 students requesting visits each year and we only have 2,500 seats total within the programs we currently offer. So figuring it out fast and correctly is important, so you don’t miss out! We assist you, your school’s counselor and/or your homeschooling parent as a part of your support network, in landing in the right program and pursuing your career goals. We have several ways to do this…..

2020-2021 KCTC Virtual Program Visit

Since we are virtual this fall: Join us for a one hour interactive zoom session to check out how your career interests fit into one of our programs. You will spend time with our Career Development Facilitators to hear all about KCTC as an option for you, find out which career pathways and ultimately which programs line up with your interests and what your next steps should be. How do you sign up for a session? If you are a homeschooling parent, please call 616-447-2433; If you student attends an area school, please contact/email the school’s counselor and they will guide you further in the process.

While we hope to hold visits in person this spring, we will currently continue to hold program visits virtually until further notice.  

Not currently being scheduled for the year due to COVID-19.

Yep that’s right! We call them deep dives because we help you “dive in” to discovering who you are and what you want to do after high school! If you are confused and a little nervous about what is next, once you become a student with us, we can assist you with individual career coaching to help you figure it out! We do lots of interesting career planning activities that help you look inward and also outward, at the world to discover your best fit!

This is a lifetime service we offer all of our KCTC/Kent ISD alumni.

We apologize but due to COVID-19 we are unable to offer community open houses or tours at this time.

Please refer back to the program tab on the website and check out the informational videos that have been provided for your viewing. 

Overall, our goal is to utilize current career development methodology and tools to ensure that every visitor has at least one step forward toward their future and current students have an action plan and skills. This will support the students in entering the world of work and/or further their education when they leave us! We help them imagine and they can go DO IT!
