Welcome to OATC

  • Welcome to the two-year career and technical education programs! The two-year programs are available for Olathe juniors and seniors only. All of our programs focus on today’s high-demand career fields and help prepare students for the world of work or post-secondary training by combining student interest and learning through hands-on experiences, industry-standard resources and equipment, and real-world partnerships fusing academic and technical skills, knowledge and the training necessary for future careers.

    Students must complete an application process for acceptance into our two-year programs. Student applicants need to have good attendance, good behavior, and be on-track to graduate in order to qualify for our programs during their junior and senior years. The timeline for applying for a two-year program is:

    • End of October — Application for the following school year goes live
    • October — District open house for students in grades 8–11
    • October/November — Scheduled tours with students' home high school
    • December — Application deadline
    • January — Students are notified via email of acceptance to a program
    • Mid-January — Students must accept their position by returning their signed contract.
    • April - Students must attend a Mandatory Orientation meeting annually in order to be enrolled in our programs.
