Many programs allow students to obtain college credit from our college partners while they pursue various trade specific certifications. Through ‘Tech Centers That Work’, SOTC assists students academically by helping them increase math, reading and writing scores and providing a solid groundwork of employability skills.
SOTC’s award winning biotechnology program, now a two-teacher facility, is partnered solidly with the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation research laboratories. Other new programs will open in FY13 that address needs in the health and automated manufacturing industries.
Secondary students living in the technology center district from the Red River in the county of Love to the sunny side of the Arbuckle Mountains are eligible to attend tuition free.
