High Tech Academy

Dedicated to excellence in education

  • High Tech Academy (HTA), established in 2000 by the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), is an innovative option school. 

    HTA prepares high school students for technological careers and/or higher education in a resource-rich learning environment.  This rigorous program develops students’ academic and technical skills, particularly in English, reading comprehension, mathematics and information technology. During HTA’s demanding instructional program, students attend their home high school classes in the morning and college-level classes at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland in the afternoon.

    Students will earn college credits while working towards a high school diploma. HTA graduates are prepared for immediate employment, continuation at Tri-C, or transfer to four-year institutions of higher education.

    HTA offers many different career pathways, such as Information Technology, Business Management, Health Careers, Creative Technologies and more.

    HTA is a tuition-free program to eligible students.
