Time to start thinking about fall 2022!

As we wrap up 2021, it’s already time for sophomores and juniors to think about their schedules for fall 2022. At the end of January and early February, many districts start creating student's schedules. Students interested in attending the CTC need to see their high school counselor to enroll.
