Career and Technical Education
Springfield School District participates in career and technical education at DCTS. Each course is an extension of the high school program and elective credits towards high school graduation will be awarded. The courses are scheduled on a half-day basis.
The Delaware County Technical Schools are preparing today's students for tomorrow's opportunities by meaningful career training and a foundation for lifelong learning with support from business, industry and the community.
Articulations and Dual Enrollments
Students attending DCTS can earn college credit while in high school as part of the Tech Prep Program. DCTS has agreements with the Delaware County Community College, Penn College of Technology, Harcum College as well as other post-secondary institutions that give credit for technical courses.
DCTS students have many opportunities to achieve advanced career certifications before they graduate from high school. For example, Health Occupation students can earn Nurses' Aide, Computer students can earn A+, Network, MOS, MCSE I, and Emergency and Protective Services students can achieve CPR and HazMat Awareness certifications.
