(Berks Career and Tech Center)


All BCTC applications are due to the counseling office by

Friday, December 1, 2017


The Berks Career and Technology Center (BCTC) offers over thirty programs in different career areas to students. Two campuses serve students in Berks County. The East campus is located in Oley and the West campus is located in Leesport. Travel time and instruction at BCTC comprise three periods per day in the Tulpehocken schedule. Students will take required academic courses at their high school while attending the BCTC for their technical program. Programs are designed to be three years in length beginning in 10th grade; however, 11th and 12th grade students may also enroll and finish their certificate after graduating from Tulpehocken.


BCTC classrooms are equipped with computers, industrial machinery, and other state-of-the-art equipment providing hands-on training for students in addition to the academic component of each course of study. All curriculum is competency based, allowing students to proceed at a rate that is best for them and tailored to meet their own career objectives. Although Tulpehocken covers tuition to BCTC, students are still responsible of purchasing uniforms, books/workbooks, tools and personal protective equipment as well as certification testing fees.
