diesel3Mission Statement

The Mission of RTCC is to provide students with a challenging academic and technical education in a supportive, engaging, and respectful environment.  Students learn the skills to be responsible, productive citizens who are able to take advantage of educational and career opportunities now and in the future.
We are committed to the following goals:

  • To build confidence through technical proficiency;
  • To foster curiosity;
  • To instill a sense of pride in work well done;
  • To provide the support each student needs to become skilled both academically and in the student’s technical field;
  • To demonstrate respect and honesty in all our actions;
  • To help students learn self-discipline; and
  • To use these core goals and the values they represent as filters for our decisions and actions.

Dual Enrollment Agreements

Randolph Technical Career Center strongly believes that giving students the opportunity to gain college
credit while still in high school provides great benefit to the students by allowing them to experience
college level work which will better prepare them for the transition to higher education if that is the
path they wish to pursue after graduation. View or download our current Dual Enrollment Agreements from the "documents" box to the left.

SkillsUSA

SkillsUSA is a Career & Technical Education Student Organization (CTSO) that provides curriculum support, state and national workshops/conferences and competitions aimed at preparing America’s high performance workers enrolled in public career and technical education programs. It provides quality education experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development. It builds and reinforces self-confidence, work attitudes and communications skills. It emphasizes total quality at work—high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education, and pride in the dignity of work. SkillsUSA also promotes understanding of the free-enterprise system and involvement in community service.

Each career and technical student organization (CTSO) provides a unique program of career and leadership development, motivation and recognition. Each provides a contextual environment for increasing academic, technical and workplace skills.

The basic CTSO unit for students is the local chapter. They are located in the 15 technical centers in Vermont as well as high schools with approved career and technical education programs. Each CTSO participates in a state association that is linked to a national organization. Travel, competition, and scholarship opportunities are available to all members of a CTSO.
