Why Career & Technical?


Tennessee Technology Center at Crossville (TTC) High school students have the opportunity to enroll in classes at the Tennessee Technology Center (TTC) as part of their high school schedule. Each class offers a unique combination of individualized instruction and hands-on training giving students the practical experience they need to succeed. Classes taken at TTC can provide better employment opportunities and/or better prepare students for their post secondary experience. For these reasons, TTC recommends students take one class for the school year, not one semester. Students desiring to take four blocks in one semester must have special permission from the TTC. Credits earned at TTC can lead to advanced placement at TTC, and Community Colleges.
