All applications to Dauphin County Technical School must come through the participating school district guidance office. Students who wish to attend DCTS must see his or her guidance counselor at the participating school and pick up an application. The application and parental registration must be filled out completely and returned to your guidance counselor. The guidance counselor will collect the other information and prepare the packet to be sent to DCTS by the due date for admissions for the next school year.
Any student who previously attended DCTS may reapply by completing an application at their participating school district. This application will be considered on the same basis as that of a new student and processed in the same manner. The aptitude of each candidate for a specific program will be considered. All applicants should be in good academic standing, have good attendance and demonstrate appropriate behavior for high school students.
Ninth grade students who attend Dauphin County Technical School are not guaranteed acceptance into their first choice of a specific career and technical program because a program may be full. If the program they request is oversubscribed upon the completion of the program, they will need to consider a second and third choice as possible career paths. The student will then be placed on a waiting list for the oversubscribed programs and as openings become available, students on the wait list will be considered for acceptance into their requested program.
