The McKeesport Area Technology Center serves the youth of the McKeesport School District. Our mission is to provide quality vocational education programs to 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students of all ability levels. This is done through the newly-developed competency-based curriculum.
The Technology Center is intended for those students who wish to prepare for an immediate occupation with increased earning capability following graduation, as well as for those students who may wish to pursue higher education.
The McKeesport Area School District espouses the School-to-Work philosophy which includes both school and work-based components.
THE SCHOOL-BASED COMPONENT involves educational programs such as Tech Prep. The goal of Tech Prep is to emphasize academics in math, science, and communications, along with technical education. Tech Prep begins in the eleventh grade and is extended to a post-secondary school. This gives students the necessary background to obtain a specialized Associate Degree, which can lead to a four-year Bachelor Degree.
THE WORK-BASED COMPONENT includes a variety of job training and internships that are relevant to a career choice. Partnerships are formed between the school district and local business/industry to provide work experiences, mentoring, and instruction in general workplace skills.
THE CONNECTING ACTIVITIES COMPONENT offers community based experiences which count towards the Senior Project.
The following programs are offered:
Allied Health Technology
Computer Aided Drafting and Design
Auto Body and Collision
