ADMITTED FAMILIES NIGHT!  Wednesday, May 10th from 6:30pm-8pm

All new families, please come to ACC on May 10th to meet each other and connect with current parents and students. Register here.

Arlington Tech combines:

  • A focus on STEM and Career Technical Education (CTE) classes: Student schedules combine in-demand skills with STEM academic opportunities.  All of our 9th grade students take Engineering with a focus on design thinking as a foundation for further STEM studies.
  • Project-based learning: Students collaborate on open-ended projects and apply classroom content to real-world problems and relevant questions.
  • Dual-Enrolled (DE) coursework: Students learn from APS teachers who are NOVA professors. Students demonstrate the ability to succeed in college-level classes and earn transferable college credit.
  • Capstone Experience: Seniors participate in a year-long work-based experience focused on college-level research, job-site internships, or client-focused projects.

Arlington Tech is located at the Arlington Career Center campus, where students have access to exceptional lab spaces and a variety of Dual-Enrolled (DE) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses.  We accept students at the beginning of 9th and 10th grade via a lottery process.
