Pre-Registration Form for the 2021-2022 School Year

AmTech Career Academy, as the name suggests, is all about career development for students who aspire to begin preparing for their future while in high school. All courses are hands-on and mimic the work students may expect to do when they continue to pursue their chosen careers beyond high school.

All students desiring to attend AmTech are required to complete the Pre-Registration Form found at the link below. After taking a look at the Schools and Pathways in the dropdown menus and deciding on a Pathway, please open the link below and complete the form. This form will not only help us plan our schedule for next year, but it will also give us insight about why you want to pursue a career at AmTech.

Keep in mind that not all Pathway courses begin at AmTech, as many of the freshmen and sophomore courses are offered only at the home campus. For instance, a student wanting to pursue Culinary Arts would take preparatory course work at the home campus before coming to AmTech their Junior year for Advanced Culinary Arts. However, if you are a freshman who wants to pursue Animal Science, all courses will be at AmTech starting the freshman year.

Though not all students will come to AmTech as a freshman, we still want to stay in touch with and prepare for students to come eventually, so all students are asked to complete the form.

Please complete the AmTech 2021-2022 Pre-Registration Form (Google Form opens in new window).

For assistance, feel free to contact Jay Barrett, Tiffany Hooker, or Lee Jurajda at 806-326-2800.
