Lycoming Career & Technology Center

January 2023 HIGHLIGHTS

LycoCTC Vision, Mission, & Core Values

Earlier this school year we started the process of identifying what we want the future of our school to look like, analyzing the overall goal of the school, and what it is we value most in the way we work together. A survey was created and shared with our local and occupational advisory groups, superintendents, staff, and students of LycoCTC. This input was used to create the vision statement and adopt our core values. The mission statement of our school was already in place and continues to align with the overall vision and goals.

The vision, mission, and core values below were recently approved by our Joint Operating Committee. We are excited to continue striving towards our vision and look forward to celebrating the many accomplishments of our students and staff along the way as we hold on to our core values.
