Career & Technology Centre at Lord Shaughnessy High School

The Career & Technology Centre (CTC) changes the way most of us think about school. While it is housed in a school building, it isn't a school on its own, but rather a hub for CTS learning for students registered in CBE high schools across Calgary.  

Students who attend the CTC will take courses at their designated high schools, but they will also access the CTC to enhance their learning through  credentialed, dual credit or pre-placement programs for specific periods of time.
