Interested in Durham Tech?

A father's statement about Durham Tech:  His son participated in CCP and is graduating in 2019; he will finish college in 3 years, saving $75,000 in doing so!    "______ has been accepted by all of the NC schools he has applied to which includes NC State, UNC and Duke.  I honestly believe the success _____ has had at Durham Tech was a great contributor to these schools accepting him into their programs.  FYI, he has decided to go to Duke as part of the class of 2023."


Nutrition Tip of the Day!

Eat WHOLE foods. Foods that come from nature, or as close to possible, have the most nutrients that will keep our bodies healthy. Try to eat apples instead of fruit candy, and drink white milk instead of soda.


Class of 2019, we have a new way for you to keep informed of such things as scholarships, testing dates, Jostens deliveries, and graduation info!  Text @knights-19 to the number 81010 to sign up for Remind messages throughout the year on upcoming events.
