The mission of the Fulton County Area Vocational Technical School (FCAVTS), in partnership with the Central Fulton, Forbes Road and Southern Fulton School Districts, is to provide a quality education to all secondary students attending vocational programs. To accomplish this mission, students have the opportunity to maximize their potential and acquire and update marketable technical skills through comprehensive, diverse and integrated vocational programs.
The purpose of the programs offered through the FCAVTS is to prepare students for a specific career objective or for advancement into post-secondary education through technical instruction. Students attend specialized technical classes for three periods per day in addition to their regular academic studies. Most of the instruction that students receive is â€œhands-onâ€ in nature and provides an opportunity to apply learning in â€œreal lifeâ€ situations. Students are able to choose between four Career Clusters when scheduling classes. Within these four clusters students will select a specific program area. All completers of FCAVTS programs will take a Student Occupational Competency Assessment (NOCTI or other PDE approved test). Upon achieving the state standard on this exam students will receive a Pennsylvania Skills Certificate, which is a nationally recognized certification of competence in their career area.
