The Shelby County Area Technology Center aspires to leave a legacy of students who strive to be lifelong learners, think critically, become skilled employees, and view community involvement and responsibility as a welcomed obligation.
The 2017-2018 schools year will bring about many exciting changes at the Shelby County Area Technology Center. SCATC will open a 30,000 square foot addition in conjunction with renovating our existing building. Two new programs will begin that will provide career opportunities in high wage, high demand sectors in our region, Diesel Technology and Welding. There will be $1.5 million in new equipment in our classrooms and labs; $1.1 million from the Kentucky Work Ready Skills Initiative Grant and $400K from the support of the Shelby County Board of Education. There is a lot to be excited about as we start this year.
The new and improved space, new programs, and updated equipment help us support our “Why”. It is the purpose of the SCATC to produce “lifelong learners, who think critically, become skilled employees, and view community involvement and responsibility as a welcomed obligation.” When our students learn this, and our graduates put it into practice, our community will thrive.
We look forward to working with our students, stakeholders, and community members in this important work. It is through everyone’s input and teamwork that we will produce skilled employees and engaged community members.
