Students who demonstrate high levels of learning and mastery of skills at RMCTC often decide to pursue further education at a college, university, or technical school. Graduates may get a head start on post-secondary education by taking advantage of articulation and dual enrollment agreements.
Articulation and dual enrollment agreements are cooperative arrangements between secondary schools, such as RMCTC, and post-secondary schools concerning admission and the granting of college credits to students who are interested in continuing their education. Benefits of articulation agreements may include automatic or priority admission, advanced placement, and/or college credit for mastery of material learned in high school.
Reading Muhlenberg Career & Technology Center has established articulation agreements with a number of post-secondary schools. Presently we have attained articulation agreements with Penn College of Technology, Triangle Tech, Connecticut Culinary Institute, The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, Reading Area Community College, The Art Institute of Philadelphia, Baran Institute of Technology, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, Welder Training and Testing Institute, McCann’s School of Business, Lincoln Technical School and Berks Technical Institute.
Students Occupationally & Academically Ready (SOAR) is the Bureau of Career and Technical Education (BCTE) career and technical Program of Study educational plan that coordinates the secondary career and technical programs to the postsecondary certificate, diploma, or degree programs.
The SOAR Programs Transfer Center was developed to allow students, parents, guidance counselors, and school personnel access to a new innovation from AcademyOne, Inc. The SOAR Transfer Center is automatically updated daily by AcademyOne, Inc. with the most current information available in a live viewing environment.
Students who complete approved Programs of Study at Reading Muhlenberg CTC may be eligible to earn college credits. The approved programs available are listed on the SOAR website. Schools that accept SOAR credits can be found at www.collegetransfer.net.
