Dual Credit High School Academy

CVTC and local high schools have partnered to offer incoming high school juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing a career in construction an opportunity to earn college credit. Dual credit academies give high school students a chance to navigate their interests and career options to develop the most successful individualized career path. Credits earned through this academy may be applied to CVTC programs. We are offering two sections to accommodate summer schedules.
