    (to be used along with the CTE Application Procedure)

    The Center for Technology, Essex (CTE) offers a strong selection of career preparation programs that are open to both high school students and adult learners. To encourage success in the program of interest for the adult applicant, prior career planning and academic assessments are requested. CTE works with the Department of Labor (DOL), Reach-Up and Vermont Vocational Rehabilitation to ensure that applicants are ready for the rigors of full-time technical school. Adults who are accepted into CTE programs will be required to attend school every day, Monday – Friday, from 9:40 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.; school is in session from late August/early September until early June each year. The best time to apply is between January and March for the following Fall, although you may have success with a summer application if there is still space in the program you are interested in.

    Adults without a high school diploma (including those with a GED) may enroll in daytime programs free of charge. Adults with a high school diploma may attend daytime programs on a space-available basis with a reduced tuition charge. Tuition for the school year is $4,800.00 plus $85.00 for parking on campus.
