The Fresno County Office of Education is opening a new charter high school in the fall. It's called Career Technical Education Charter High School or CTEC High. The free, public charter high school is under construction and will include a state-of-the-art $6-million shop.

It's the first charter high school opened by FCOE. Fresno County Schools Superintendent Jim Yovino and CTEC High Director Jonathan Delano were guests on Latino Life with host Graciela Moreno. They talked about the goal of welcoming a freshman class of 125 students in August.

All 8th-grade students from Fresno County are encouraged to apply now. An open house for parents and students will be held on February 27 at 7 p.m. at CTEC located at 1320 N. Mariposa, Fresno.

Students will acquire knowledge, skills and certification in the fields of commercial construction and advanced manufacturing.

Students can earn a high school diploma and Associate of Science degree from Fresno City College. Teenagers will also have an opportunity to apply the skills they learn in the classroom and shop to impact families within the community.

Call (559) 443-4861 for more information. Submit an application at http://ctec.fcoe.org/
