Here at the ATC our classes are divided up into three categories Information Technology & Computer Science, Digital Design & Marketing, & Architecture, Engineering, & Manufacturing. While courses are divided by categories the classes throughout the ATC often work together, whether it be in-class projects/assignments or through clubs and extra curricular activites.

We find it to be our job to prepare the future generations of tomorrow with the skills necessary for success. With this, we offer a plethora of industry certifications for every class at the ATC at no cost to the student or their family! Each course has a pathway of certifications which every student is given the resources and knowledge to acquire.
