What if I have credit deficiencies or poor attendance?

The ultimate goal is that all students graduate. Our MVCTC school counselors will be reviewing your application to decide the best educational experience depending on the severity of deficiencies.  Students who do have credit deficiencies and/or poor attendance may be required to participate in Project PASS.  They will be required to submit plans for making up the credit deficiencies and/or sign an attendance pledge if the student is admitted to MVCTC.

When will I find out if I have been accepted to MVCTC?

Partner school counselors pick up acceptance notices at the Spring (by mid-April) Partner School Counselors' Meeting at MVCTC. The counselors then distribute the information to their students. After the initial review, status letters will be mailed.

What is the daily schedule at MVCTC?

Students attend MVCTC from 8:05 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. each day. The school day consists of hands-on career technical program training, English, science, social studies, math, and elective classes. Click here to see the academic course descriptions.

Do I need to have my own transportation every day?

Transportation is provided by each partner high school. Apprenticeship, Internship, and Open Enrollment students must provide their own daily transportation. The Dayton RTA does have a daily route to MVCTC.

Students can earn eight credits each year at MVCTC, which are awarded by semester. They receive their high school diplomas from their partner district high school. A student will receive a portfolio from MVCTC which displays a profile of both professional and personal accomplishments.  This portfolio is called a Career Passport and will be given to students at Senior Recognition in May at Wright State University's Nutter Center.

MVCTC prepares students for a seamless transition from high school to college by providing opportunities to earn college credit and scholarship money towards a post-secondary education. Click here to see the many College Option opportunities at MVCTC.
