        Now Available through your i-Student account

        Login to your i-Student account using your i-Student code, which is not the same as your parents’ i-Parent code.  If you have not set up your i-Student account yet, please contact your school office or call Mrs. Smith at 352-0414.  Please note that when you click on the i-Student link it will take you to the i-Parent page, but logging in with your i-Student code will access your i-Student account information.

        It is a good idea to have your essay written before you login, so that you don’t get timed out writing it on the application.  The essay question is:  “What can CTHS do for you and what can you do for CTHS?”

        Our mission is to help students succeed in the Career Pathways that they may choose through educational experiences based on a Career Academy Model.

        CTHS Addition Information

        McCool Carlson Green worked collaboratively with the school Building Design Committee to refine the spatial needs and develop a range of design options to add 33,000 square feet of building to the existing Career & Technical High School. You can see the McCool Carlson Green’s Design Narrative of new CTHS addition here.

        CTE Programs of Studies (CTEPS)

        Each Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathway offers career-minded students an opportunity to explore and prepare for a career. Career and Technical Education Programs of Studies (CTEPS) provide suggested courses to take in high school. Students and parents can use these CTEPS to guide their decision making about what courses to take in high school. Click on this link for our district’s CTEPS.

        CTHS Announcements

        • Holland America-Princess Alaska
          My name is Lynette Henderson and I am an assistant manager in Guest Services for Holland America-Princess Alaska.  A few months ago, a couple of colleagues and I visited Mat-Su Career Tech to give a presentation on our company here in Alaska.  We really enjoyed being there and sharing information with you and your students.  

          At this time, our website is available to take applications for the upcoming Summer 2015 season.  In Guest Services, there are positions available for applicants 16 and older.  Guest Service Hosts assist our guests going to/from the cruise ships, land tours, airport, their hotel stay in Anchorage, and day excursions.  Luggage Services employees give great service by making sure that each guest's luggage arrives to their destinations in a timely and accurate manner.  Teachers also make great employees and have been assets to our seasonal staff.

          We left brochures, cards, and other materials that give more information when we were there, but if you would like more or have questions, I would be happy to assist in any way that I can.  I actually live very close to the school in Wasilla so I could drop materials off or visit anytime.  My information to contact me is below.

          The website address to apply and receive detailed information is:  www.alaskatourjobs.com.  Again, if you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact me.
