New for the 2017-2018 school year, MVCTC and Northmont City School have partnered to create another tremendous opportunity for students at Northmont High School. The Career Credit Lab (CCL) combines a work-based learning component along with related academics to give students the opportunity to gain valuable employability skills and job-site experiences while earning credits towards high school graduation. Included in the CCL is also a credit lab for students that may need intervention with credit recovery to further enhance their opportunities to stay on track for graduation. These students have the opportunity to gain industry credentials that they will be able to use throughout their lifetime. Credential opportunities are to either earn their State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) or certification in Robotics and Manufacturing from Yaskawa and FANUC. This opportunity is the first of its kind in the Miami Valley Region.

Additionally, MVCTC opened new satellite programs in partnership with local school districts including, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs for middle school students at Bethel Local Schools and Milton-Union Exempted Village Schools. MVCTC is currently offering 23 satellite programs at 16 partner school district locations. On average, MVCTC serves over 4,000 middle and high school students in the Miami Valley through the main campus, satellite programs, and Youth Connections. The Adult Education division serves approximately 6,000 adults each year.

For over 45-years, MVCTC has been providing career technical education for 27 partner school districts encompassing five counties in Southwest Ohio. MVCTC is dedicated to providing in-demand workforce training for youth, adults, and organizations in the Miami Valley.
