How to Apply

Applications are now being accepted for the 2019-2020 School Year. The steps to apply are below.

1. Discuss Tech Center courses and opportunities with parents.

2. Review academic and career plans with school counselors to ensure Tech Center courses fit the diploma plan for on-time graduation.

3. Visit the school counseling office in all VBCPS high schools to pick up and complete an application or download a fillable pdf application. Pick a primary and a secondary course. Please write a detailed essay for the reason the student desires placement in a Tech Center course describing why the student is interested in the course(s), how the student plans to use the knowledge and skills obtained at the Tech Center in the future, and details about prior experiences related to the desired course(s) of study.

4. Submit the completed application to the home high school counseling office. The initial application deadline is 2/1/2019. Applications will be accepted after 2/1/2019 on a case by case basis.

5. Attend Tech Center Open House 2/6/2019 at 6:00PM. Attendance at open house is not an application requirement, but it is highly encouraged.

6. Students accepted into Tech Center courses and students placed on the waiting list will be notified via the home high school counselor in the first week of March by meeting with the home high school counselor. At this time, accepted students must accept or decline their positions in class and change their 2019-2020 course schedules to reflect placement in their Tech Center course.
