Pulaski County Area Technology Center

With high expectations and strong partnerships, Kentucky Tech will actively engage all students in the mastery of academic and technical skills needed to be ready for college and a career.

School Goals

Goal 1: Increase Career Readiness for seniors, as indicated by Industry Certifications.

Goal 2: Increase work-based learning opportunities for students by partnering with local business and industry.

Goal 3: Have 100% participation by all program areas in Problem Based Learning projects.

The Pulaski County Area Technology Center (ATC) is starting our 14th year of providing career and technical education to the students of the Somerset/Pulaski County area. Presently, we offer technical skills training in the areas of Automotive Technology, Health Sciences, Construction Carpentry, Industrial Maintenance, and Welding.

We are consistently recognized for outstanding career readiness rates. Most recently, we were recognized for providing more industry certifications for seniors than all other ATCs in Kentucky. We encourage all of our students to obtain a college education due to the skill level and training necessary for success in today’s global economy. Many of our courses are eligible for dual college credit or articulation to post-secondary institutions. We are here for our students every step of the way from assisting with scholarship searches and applications to helping students entering the workforce directly out of high school with job searches and recommendations for employment.

Students interested in dual credit opportunities or potential work-based learning opportunities should talk with their teachers.
