The administration, faculty and staff of the Mifflin Juniata Career and Technology Center are gearing up for another great year with a fresh and renewed outlook. A new agreement between the Mifflin and Juniata School Districts has been finalized and the school will continue to operate from its current location at 700 Pitt St., Lewistown.
The MJCTC currently offers vocational training in ten program areas: electrical installation, precision machining, building trades maintenance, collision repair technology, automotive mechanics technology, agriculture technology, early childhood education, medical science, culinary arts and cosmetology. Students in grades 10, 11 and 12 from Mifflin County, East Juniata and Juniata High Schools are welcome to receive the benefit of attending.
While at the MJCTC, the students will be trained in the program of their choice and will be evaluated on their work ethic, classroom knowledge and hands-on skills. Students have the ability to showcase their skills in a variety of different ways. Culinary arts students gain experience through the student-operated Kudos Cafe in the spring of each year. Early Childhood Education students spend part of their school day volunteering at several of the quality childcare facilities throughout Mifflin County which enables each student to log hours toward their CDA certification. Likewise, qualifying students have the opportunity as seniors to participate in the Capstone Co-Op program where they receive on the job training from local employers in their chosen field of study.

The Mifflin Juniata Career and Technology Center will continue to offer vocational training in 10 program areas during this school year.
Additionally, as a result of our recent curriculum alignment, students who meet specific requirements have the opportunity to receive advanced credit transfer to numerous post-secondary schools across the state. This means that if a student attends a participating post-secondary school, they can receive 9 to 12 articulated college credits for having met all the requirements while attending the MJCTC.
As a student of the MJCTC, you will gain in-demand skills, industry credentials and experience in your chosen field. You can get there from here!
