Atlantic Technical College and Technical High School (ATC) is a public magnet high school located on the campus of Atlantic Technical College in Coconut Creek, Florida. ATC's principle of providing an excellent academic education while at the same time endowing students with twenty-first century technical skills is a special focus of the school. The postsecondary technical academies prepare students for current and future trends in the labor market. A key to our success is "The FAB (Fabulous) Four," which gives students the opportunity to achieve the following distinctions: 1.) a college-preparatory high school diploma; 2.) a technical program completion/certificate offering technical dual-enrollment quality points; 3.) industry credentials/licenses; and 4.) articulated college credit. Because of their earned industry credentials and licenses, students develop cutting-edge skills for high-wage jobs while in high school, leading to success in college and beyond.

As a devoted community of learners, we know our students well. Our teachers monitor and differentiate instruction so that all learning styles, including the needs of English Language Learners and Exceptional Education students, are met. Academic and elective teachers incorporate an understanding of our country's rich multicultural tradition within their courses. For example, Architectural Drafting students study the design and structure of international buildings, and every week, our Culinary Arts students prepare foods from cultures all over the world. Students and their families value the distinctive educational experience at ATC, respect the faculty and staff, and understand that education is a ticket to a successful future in college, career, and life.
