CTE courses introduce students to skilled trades that lead to a variety of high-opportunity college and career options. Skilled trades are essential to Colorado’s health, infrastructure, and economic growth. Many of these jobs are local, hands-on jobs, meaning they are unlikely to be outsourced.
Students at MCT can choose between two different CTE courses on our campus, or take CTE courses at one of our neighboring schools — Vista Academy or Legacy Options High School.
Select CTE courses also qualify as concurrent enrollment courses, which means students can earn college credit and/or certifications upon completion of the course.
The concurrent enrollment program allows students to earn college credits for free while fulfilling high school graduation requirements.
Students at MCT have the opportunity to enroll in concurrent enrollment courses through our partnership with Emily Griffith Technical College.
Qualifying students can begin to earn college credits with tuition covered by Denver Public Schools. This means that MCT students can earn up to two years of college credit upon graduating for free!
By earning transferable college credits while still in high school, students save both time and money and ease the transition to college. Through concurrent enrollment, students are exposed to the rigors of college at an earlier age, better preparing them for postsecondary success. With the ICAP process, concurrent enrollment allows students to take courses that are of personal interest to them. Additionally, students who participate in concurrent enrollment are eligible to apply for ASCENT.
