Recognizing the benefit of obtaining workforce skills while mastering core academics, numerous Salisbury High School students attend Lehigh Career & Technical Institute (LCTI), a world-class career and technical educational facility located in the Lehigh Valley. LCTI provides students with an opportunity to develop employability skills, engage in hands-on learning that mirrors the workplace, earn industry credentials and certifications, and participate in co-ops and internships. Learn more about LCTI’s program offerings here.

Currently for the 2017-18 school year, 117 Salisbury High School students attend LCTI:

  • ½-day Program – 110 students
  • Career Academy Program (CAP) – 2 students
  • Academic Center (AC) – 5 students

Salisbury’s students participate in such diverse labs as Precision Machine Tool Technology, Web Design / Web Programming, Cosmetology, and Early Care and Education of Young Children, among others. While at LCTI, juniors and seniors participate in career competency examinations known as the NOCTI (National Occupational Competency Testing Institute) exams. These exams assess student preparedness according to industry standards.

Salisbury’s students performed exceptionally well on the 2016-17 NOCTI (National Occupational Competency Testing Institute) tests that were administered at LCTI last spring. Twenty Salisbury students took the NOCTI’s. 90% (18/20) of our students scored advanced or competent while 10% (2/20 students) scored basic. This is an exceptional “pass” rate and is a testament to the education these students are receiving at LCTI and SHS.

Salisbury also has students who have been inducted into LCTI’s National Honor Society.
