Some students earn enough credits to be awarded an associate degree before they leave high school, said school officials.
Butler Tech officials said the career school system’s continued mission of delivering more qualified high school graduates to local companies and area colleges is being expanded through its partnership with Cincinnati State, which has a downtown Middletown building branch.
“All of our students experience a journey at Butler Tech thanks to their passion, purpose and the impact they plan to make in their futures,” said Jon Graft, superintendent of Butler Tech, which is one of the largest career school districts in Ohio.
“Whether it’s the workforce, certifications, the military or college, our students are destined for future success and the partnership with Cincinnati State is an opportunity for our students to further their education seamlessly,” said Graft.
