The Advanced Technical Center (ATC) has been created to remove barriers to access Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in the District.
It is an open-enrollment education center where students entering 9th–11th grade in DCPS or public charter schools can participate in CTE programs while remaining enrolled in the high school of their choosing.
The ATC offers two-year, four-course dual credit pathways in cybersecurity, health information technology, and general nursing. Students in every program can receive college course credit at no cost in addition to high school course credit, industry credentials, and paid internship opportunities. There is no application to enroll and students will be offered transportation support. ATC classes will run five days a week with two sessions offered each day.
