Full Day Admissions

Why Full Day?

I chose North Tech full day because…

  • Fully immerse yourself into your technical program
    Full day students have the opportunity to spend extra time in their CTE program during advisory period each day. It is also common for academic teachers to collaborate with CTE teacher to create lessons that are relevant for students and their career goals.
  • Small class sizes
    North Tech keeps full day classes small, allowing you to pursue a more rigorous curriculum with tremendous support from your teachers.
  • Student Athletics
    Full day students have the exclusive opportunity to join North Tech’s sports teams.
  • A diverse and supportive environment
    North Tech full day students join from all over North St. Louis County. We celebrate our diversity and create an environment that welcomes all.
