The Need for the Chester County Technical College High School
Over the past decade, Chester County has experienced unprecedented growth, especially in the southern portion of the county. Unfortunately, due to the rural character of southern Chester County, career and technical training and work force development have not kept pace with the region’s rapidly expanding population.
For example, over 300 high school students were denied admission to the Center for Arts & Technology Brandywine Campus due to lack of space. The Brandywine Campus provides career and technical training to high school students living in southern and central Chester County, and is at maximum capacity with nearly 900 students.
