Our Story

Lehigh Career & Technical Institute is Pennsylvania’s largest career and technical school. Founded in 1971, LCTI today provides more than 45 skills-based programs of study and academic instruction for about 2,700 ninth- through 12th-grade students from Lehigh County’s nine public school districts. Those school districts are:

LCTI also offers industry-relevant training and credentials for adults working in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. The school’s state-of-the-art facilities encompass roughly 450,000 square feet on a 47-acre campus in the Schnecksville section of North Whitehall Township.

Our Joint Operating Committee

Lehigh Career & Technical Institute is governed by a 21-member Joint Operating Committee composed of school directors from each of the nine sending districts. The number of committee members from a given district is proportionate to the market value of that district’s property, as determined by Pennsylvania’s State Tax Equalization Board. The districts’ school boards appoint their representatives.
