8th Grade: Discover

1. See what is available and how the Career and Tech is different than other schools.

  • Discover CCCTC with the 8th grade STEM tours.  Every CCPS eighth grader is given the opportunity to visit the Tech Center on a fieldtrip.
  • Look at the program pages on this website for LOTS of information.  Pay attention to the the 'Abilities/Qualities" section to see what you can do to prepare for the program you are interested.

2. Prepare for the application process..

  • Make sure you are trying hard to have good attendance
  • Challenge yourself to take the highest level classes in which you can find success
  • Grades count, starting in 9th grade, so make sure you practice now doing such things as studying at home, completing and turning in homework, and participating in classes.
  • Plan a schedule for high school classes with your parents and counselor that provides you with the necessary classes. (see the CCPS program of studies)
