North Tech and South Tech to host Open House Events
October 8, 2021 - North and South Technical High Schools, St. Louis County’s career and technical education (CTE) providers, will host Open Houses this fall to introduce students and families to the relevant and rewarding programs available to them in high school. North Tech’s event will be in-person on October 28, 2021, offering sessions from 5-6 PM or 6-7 PM. South Tech’s event will be virtual on November 4, 2021, from 5-7 PM.
In cooperation with local partner districts, North Tech and South Tech offer students CTE courses that immerse them in real-world learning. CTE’s mission is college and career readiness - a commitment to preparing students for the increasing demands of the 21st-century workforce and ensuring they are fully prepared for college or careers.
During Open House, students and families will view presentations from instructors and admissions teams and engage in Q&A sessions. Application assistance and school overviews will also be available. Both schools are now accepting applications for August 2022. North Tech will also be accepting applications for January 2022. Online applications can be submitted on North & South Tech’s Application Portal.
Acceptance to North or South Tech is competitive and classes accept an average of 20 students per year. The smaller class sizes allow students to build lasting connections with their instructors grounded in mentorship, team building, and a passion for their course of study. Students take CTE electives on our campuses, while their academic courses, lunch, and extracurricular activities continue at their home high school.
Homeschooled, privately educated, and public schooled high school students who live in St. Louis County are eligible to take classes at North and South Tech tuition-free. Classes can begin in the sophomore year at North, or in the junior year and continue through senior year at both schools and students earn 1.5 high school elective credits awarded each semester. Most programs offer articulated and/or college credits, industry-recognized certifications, credentials, and licenses. Several programs also offer embedded academic high school credit.
