    Academy Introduction

    At Visalia Technical Early College (VTEC) High School, students will have the opportunity to learn applied agricultural sciences; Animal and Veterinary science, Ag Business Management, and Ag Systems Technology. All students must be willing to enroll into COS their freshman year and take the placement exam. Each student will have the opportunity to take COS classes each year. 


    At VTEC, classroom academics are always combined with hands on, project-based learning that takes place on our newly remodeled 35 acre Ag farm campus.  We support our students with our “Zero’s Not Accepted” policy structure to make sure students work is completed with rigorous expectation.   In partnership with our Advisory Board, VTEC has created a school environment where students explore career related skills within a relevant environment on and off campus. We are the school, “Where Agriculture Meets Academics.”
