WHEN SHOULD I ATTEND?

Most high school students apply for shared-time programs in 10th grade. First-year students typically attend in 11th grade from 8:00AM to 10:45AM and return to their home school for lunch and academic classes. Second-year students typically attend in 12th grade from 11:45AM to 2:30PM after completing their academics and lunch at the home school. However, some programs are offered for one year so schedules may vary. Individual class schedules for shared-time students are completed by home school Guidance Counselors ensuring that each student has all the necessary requirements for high school graduation.

 

ADDITIONAL ACADEMIC OFFERINGS

Students may enroll in one pull-out class at Mercer County Technical Schools each year.  The class will take place during the time that the career and technical education program is offered.  Students enrolled in Cosmetology, Health Occupations and Career Prep are ineligible due to other program requirements.  Pull-out classes include Financial Literacy, History, Language Arts, Mathematics, Physical Education/Health and Science.  Requests must be made by a Guidance Counselor or Child Study Team Member.  Pull-out course offerings vary by center and may change from year to year.

 

CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Students have the opportunity to demonstrate what they've learned by participating in co-curricular student organizations such as DECA (an International Association of Marketing Students), HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) and SkillsUSA.

 

GRADUATION CREDIT

Mercer County Technical Schools is accredited by the State of New Jersey and Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools. Each shared-time program provides students with twenty high school credits per year. Upon successful completion of the program, each student receives a technical proficiency certificate. For those programs qualifying for board certification and/or a state license, testing is administered and certification and licenses are issued.

 

TRANSPORTATION
