Downriver Career Technical Consortium
If your child attends school in one of the following districts, they can choose from over 23 Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs:
Free transportation is provided to most programs. Many programs offer college credit, and some programs offer state licensure. Most programs also provide math and visual/applied arts credit, and some programs provide science credit.
The Downriver Career Technical Consortium (DCTC) was founded in 1965 as a way for three local school districts to share vocational education programs.
Over the years, the DCTC has grown and adapted to meet the ever changing needs of our evolving world. The DCTC now consists of nine local districts that share over 23 programs.
We have expanded our role in the schools to include the following opportunities:
An academic consortium that shares high level and unique classes
The Exposures: School-to-Career program - a mentoring program for 10th grade students.
Articulated college credit for most programs; direct college credit for some programs
Professional development for teachers
No two students have exactly the same skills or learning style. That’s why we create an individual learning plan for every child. Your plan will combine direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one tutoring in a way that works for your student.
