The Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) offers 17 different classes to local high school juniors and seniors from public, charter, and non-public schools in the Muskegon area. Classes are held Monday through Friday with morning and afternoon sessions of 2.5 hours long. Students spend approximately one half of their day at the MACTC and one half at their local high school.
Each class has an Advisory Committee of local professionals in related occupations. The Advisory Committee reviews program curriculum, facilities and equipment, and makes recommendations for updating and upgrading as industry standards change.
Student enrollment in MACTC programs is coordinated by local high school counselors. Prior to enrollment students complete extensive career exploration and assessment activities to determine their career goals, interests, and abilities and are matched with programs that will provide them the greatest chance for success.
