Frequently Asked Questions

I’m interested in taking courses at CTECH, how do I get started?
Students register for CTECH courses through their home high school registration process. Use the course registration guide to review the courses offered in the CTECH Pathways and add them to your registration card.
Most introductory coursework will be offered at the comprehensive high schools. Students will attend CTECH once they have completed the prerequisite coursework for the higher level, specialized classes within the pathway.

If I don’t start coursework in 9th grade am I eligible for CTECH?
Yes! Students may begin coursework for CTECH at any time during their high school career. If you want to get to the higher level course work, it is best to begin in the pathway as soon as possible. In some cases, students may be eligible for higher level coursework due to experiences outside of school.

I don’t have my own transportation; can I attend a class at CTECH?
Transportation is provided between the neighborhood high schools, the alternative high school and the CTECH campus on a block schedule. Students are able to provide their own transportation, but it is not required. Due to limited parking at the RCTC-CTECH campus, we recommend taking district provided transportation.

I’m not enrolled in Rochester Public Schools; can I take a course at CTECH?
CTECH is part of Rochester Public Schools, and is not a comprehensive high school. Students must be enrolled or enroll in a Rochester Public School to be eligible to attend classes at CTECH.
