Times have changed, and
 A-Tech has changed with them. To succeed in today’s new economy, students must combine robust academic knowledge with powerful career and technical skills. That’s why we help our students aspire to their full potential, achieve a competitive advantage, and advance in the real world of college and career.

A-Tech Went Above and Beyond Their United Way Goal
A-Tech Treasurer Lindsey Elly was a big winner during the United Way chinese auction. Lindsey won the “Pampered Pooch” and “Exercise your Brain” Baskets.

The staff at Ashtabula County Technical & Career Campus (A-Tech) showed their support of the annual A-Tech United Way campaign in a big way. The “Give from the Heart” campaign exceeded the set $8,000 goal.

     Thank you to the   A-Tech United Way committee who worked so hard to make this event a super success! Thank you to the teams who donated and put together the 14 beautiful chinese auction baskets and the local businesses and companies who donated towards our daily prize drawings.
