Shadowing a CTC Program
Students interested in applying to a CTC program must first schedule a shadow experience for the program(s) they would like to apply for. Shadowing is mandatory for applying to any program offered at CTC. Students may shadow and apply for up to two different CTC programs. Students are encouraged to select programs to shadow by talking with their high school counselor or by checking out the programs page on our CTC web site.
On the day shadowing takes place students will ride the CTC bus from their high school to and from CTC for half of the school day. During the shadow experience students can expect to meet with the instructor and other students interested in the program, as well as students currently enrolled in that program. Students are able to ask questions about the program and hear the expectations of the instructor. The shadow experience is also a part of the acceptance criteria. To learn more about the acceptance criteria check out the Frequently Asked Questions page.
The shadowing and application process begins in November each year and runs through February. Students may shadow and apply at anytime during that period.
Shadowing and applications will be accepted after February during the 2nd round of applications only for programs that still have open seats. Please note - if you have already shadowed an open program you do not need to re-shadow the program during the 2nd round of shadowing.
Please remember you MUST shadow a program before Applying.
Applications that are made without a shadow experience will not be considered.
