High School Students
Career and Technical Education Act – Senate Bill 155
Beginning the 2012-2013 school year, the Governor of Kansas approved juniors and seniors to access college credit classes that prepare students to work in high demand career fields at NO CHARGE through the Career and Technical Education Act – Senate Bill 155 (CTE). This opportunity will assist students in acquiring work ready skills while building a college transcript and contribute to a skilled workforce for Kansas employers.
Without paying a penny in tuition, students are eligible to take qualified career and technical college credit courses offered through Wichita Area Technical College!
Students can earn college credit taking courses at WATC, high school campus or online. WATC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (www.ncahlc.org)making general and technical education course credits easily transferable to other colleges.
WATC ACE (Accelerated College Experience) provides high school students an opportunity to get started on their postsecondary goals while still in high school!
