Talk to your Student Services Teacher about other possible patterns.
Students register at their home school, allowing them to participate in school events and extra-curricular activities including sports, music and student government. Students graduate with their classmates at their home school. In addition to their regular high school diploma and an ATC certificate, student in most programs earn a Technology Education High School Diploma. Students may also choose to complete all or part of a program following high school graduation (no tuition fees for the first 4 credits after graduation).
ATC students who hold evening or summer jobs may be eligible to obtain high school credits towards graduation and time credit towards continued apprenticeship training by applying for the High School Apprenticeship Program. Students are encouraged to bring and use their own electronic devices.
Students are encouraged to participate in intramural activities available at lunch time through our open gym program, as well as the student advisory committee (student government).
