You already know what we are about...career exploration, career preparation and post secondary options.
As a current KCTC junior (or sophomore) you have the option to "Early Enroll" for the 2018-2019 School Year.

1. Soon, you will be asked to log into PowerSchool to make a selection about your status for next year.

2. You will be asked to declare one of three options:
Select the program you would like to return to
Select that you are Undecided
Select that you are Not Returning

3. Assuming you plan to return to KCTC, you will also be asked to indicate the session you plan to attend...not all programs run all three sessions...not all schools send students to each session.

4. If you are Undecided, a Student Services staff member will contact you in the next couple of weeks to discuss your options and possible program visits to other programs.
