High School Seniors
We can’t wait to meet the class of 2021.
There is life after high school, and it begins right here. You’ll find education that helps you prepare for the career that’s absolutely within your reach. Meet new people who will enrich your life in ways you never imagined. And support to help you figure it all out.
Get started with our Early Application Grant and Scholarship.
Early birds get the dough of up to $5,500.
It’s easy to get a jump on your college plans and explore our grants and scholarships. You’ll wrap up your senior year worry free, knowing that you’re in control of your future. It’s that simple.
Start here: 2021 high school graduates who apply and pay their tuition deposit by midnight January 4, 2021 can receive a $500 Early Application grant and participate in the Early Application Essay Scholarship competition. PTC will award 30 or more $5,000 Early Application scholarships. Provide your answer to “How do you see your life changing, once you become a student at PTC?”
How do I apply?
Create your PTC Dashboard and apply.
Your Dashboard is an easy-to-follow enrollment center that facilitates communication between us and you, and where you can keep track of every step you need to take before starting class—from uploading transcripts to applying for financial aid and signing documents.
Everyone has questions about financial aid.
Here’s a step-by-step guide.
We’ve outlined the steps you’ll take in clear language. We know that planning for how you’ll afford your education can feel overwhelming but, once you’ve applied, you’ll be assigned a financial aid officer who’ll work with you, answer your questions, and even help you complete your paperwork if you’d like.
Grants and Scholarships
Take advantage of scholarships and grants to help make your education more affordable.
From 2019-2020, PTC students received an estimated average of $10,689 in grant and scholarship aid from PTC, federal, and state programs alone. Now it’s your turn. Remember that your admission coordinator and financial aid counselor will help you explore what you’re eligible for.
Attending a PA Career and Technical Education Center?

Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
Set a date to visit us.
There’s nothing like setting foot on campus, meeting one-on-one with admissions and faculty, taking a tour, and checking out the energy in our hallways. We also offer on- and off-campus housing, and it’s amazing. You’ll find apartment-style housing but there’s one thing you won’t find, and that’s depressing, cinder-block rooms. When you visit, you’ll take a tour of housing to see just how comfortable living here can be.
