The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) is a career technology school in Englewood, Ohio. It serves five southwestern Ohio counties (Montgomery, Warren, Preble, Darke, and Miami).[1] Prior to 1994 it was known as the Montgomery County Joint Vocational School.[2]

Students from 27 participating high schools attend classes daily in one of 40 career programs. Students from districts outside the 27 participating schools may attend the Miami Valley CTC by applying for admission and then by adhering to open enrollment guidelines.[3]

The high school division is approved and accredited by the Ohio Department of Education and North Central Association of Colleges and Schools as a two-year public career technical school offering secondary preparation with in-school and cooperative education programs.

The adult education division is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and operates within guidelines set by the University System of Ohio and the Ohio Board of Regents.

The main campus consists of four main buildings on a 240-acre (0.97 km2) site with two farm buildings, an aircraft hangar, 20 acres (81,000 m2) of woods, and a stocked pond. The three main buildings have over 425,000 square feet (39,500 m2) under roof.

Dual Enrollment – MVCTC students can receive dual enrollment college credit from Miami University Middletown (Math or Science), or Wright State University (English and Economics). Dual enrollment is not PSEO, but a collaboration between post-secondary and high school instructors to create an offering at the high school level equivalent to college transcribed credit.[citation needed]

Students completing high school requirements of the College Tech Prep program and meeting the scholarship qualifications are eligible to receive a sizeable scholarship to Sinclair Community College. (Some programs offer Tech Prep Programs with Clark State Community College)
