A Successful Back-to-School Night
Thank you to everyone who made Back-to-School Night a success!
Parents came to campus on September 16 to explore various SVCTE programs and attend teacher presentations. We had a great turnout.
We teach eligible high school students to succeed in careers and college in a professional, hands-on environment. Students explore and develop technical skills that will lead them to success in higher education or the workplace.
Our adult education school offers classes for free or at a very low cost. We provide a supportive learning environment that prepares students to achieve their fullest potential by empowering them with skills to succeed in a local and global society.
Volunteers make a difference in our students’ lives! Volunteer your time to tutor one-on-one with adult students who are completing credits for their high school diploma or learning English. Tutors are needed once or twice a week, morning or evening.
