  • Acceptance to the Career Center does not guarantee AM or PM placement. Transportation and total enrollment are important considerations in AM and PM placements.
  • BCTC students who plan to pursue post-secondary education (certificate, associate, or baccalaureate degree) should take a rigorous high school academic program in the areas of math, science, and English.

The Berks Career and Technology Center offers programs to students from 16 area school districts. Two campuses serve students in Berks County. The East campus is located in Oley, and the West campus is located in Leesport. Students electing BCTC attend on a half-day basis, taking required academic courses at their high school while attending the BCTC for their technical program. Programs are designed for three years in length beginning in the 10th grade, however, 11th and 12th grade students may also begin the program. All programs are available to all students regardless of district location.

Laboratories equipped with computers, industrial machinery, and other state-of-the-art equipment provide hands-on training for students in addition to the academic component of each course of study. All curriculum is competency based, allowing students to proceed at a rate that is best for them and tailored to meet their own career objectives.
