Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 may elect a course of study that would include a half-day program at the Western Area Career and Technology Center in Houston, PA.

Students choosing this scheduling option have two options:  an AM or a PM session. Students that choose an AM option will attend during periods 2-5.  Those that attend the PM session will have a six (6) period day at the high school in the morning.  The program at Western Area Career and Technology Center requires faithful attendance. Chronic absenteeism will result in removal from the program.

Disciplinary infractions at Western Area Career and Technology Center will be reported to the Peters Township High School Administration. Students must follow the Peters Township High School Handbook while attending the High School and the Western Area Career and Technology Center's rules, guidelines, and procedures apply while at WACTC.

At any time that the Administration from either school believes the student's best interest would be served by the student returning to the home school, this action will be considered and a meeting held with the parents/guardians and the Grade Level Assistant Principal to review the matter.

See the Course Description Booklet for courses offered at WACTC or the WACTC web site: www.wactc.net.

I attend WACTC. What do I do on days...

  • PTHS in session but WACTC is off:  AM students stay at the HS for the morning and check in with the Counseling Office. PM students are picked up at the normal time they would go to WACTC and taken directly home. 
  • PTHS is NOT in session but WACTC is open: AM Students will have a PTSD van pick them up from home & drop them off at home. For PM students, the district has two buses to pick up the students. The busses will take the students to the HS to meet their regular WACTC bus, which will take them to PM WACTC. Students with licenses can opt to drive to the HS & board the regular WACTC bus. 
For additional information, please contact the Transportation Department.
