Nearly 5,500 middle and high school students are enrolled in a CTE Class.  ROTEC offers 12 different career paths.  Students take classes on the ROTEC campus, as well as Patrick Henry and William Fleming High School.

ROTEC's graduation rate is 97%, one of the highest in the Commonwealth of Virginia. 

Teachers for Tomorrow is celebrating its 5th year.   The program allows high school students to learn all about the teaching profession.  Once they graduate from college, we hope many of these students will teach in Roanoke City.  24 students are currently enrolled in the program.  

ROTEC will host its annual Extravaganza Thursday, March 28 at the Jefferson Center.
