New Kent County is also a founding partner of the Bridging Communities Technical Center, located here in New Kent.  Opening in the fall of 2012, the BCTC will offer students in grades 11 and 12 the opportunity to enroll in high-quality, dually-enrolled CTE courses.

New Kent CTE courses also offer students the opportunity to take Industry Credential tests upon completion of a CTE course sequence.  These tests allow CTE completers to earn certifications that verify their skills and knowledge and enhance students' employability.
