High School Policy

Students must apply for admission to all CTE programs through the Maplewood Career Center website. Registration opens on Sophomore Showcase Day and closes at the end of the second week of school the following year.

Current sophomores (in their second year of high school) have access to the programs first and must meet the following requirements:

• Completed two years of high school
• Must be 16 years old at the start of their junior year
• Must have at least four credits
Current juniors and seniors (in their third or fourth year of high school) will have access to the programs starting May 15th, yearly provided they are willing to commit to completing both years of the program.

No Tuition Expenses

Maplewood serves ten school districts in Portage and Summit counties. There is no tuition charge for high school students from the participating school districts. Some students will need to purchase tool kits or other special items for course work. A payment plan/financial aid is available so that programs are affordable for all families.
