Background of Bond Wilson Technical Center/Kirtland, NM

Bond Wilson Technical Center (BWTC) located in Kirtland, NM has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Navajo Technical University (NTU) and Central Consolidated School District (CCSD) have developed a partnership with local industries to offer courses at the new instructional site. On August 31, 2018, NTU and CCSD celebrated a grand openuing of BWTC, the first early college high school academy in the state of New Mexico. High school students from Shiprock, Newcomb, Kirtland, and Career Prep participate in dual-credit courses at the instructional site, formerly Grace B. Wilson Elementary School, and NTU students that enable students to graduate in a certificate or degree program. NTU is still growing at this site and will offer more courses this summer/fall 2020 and spring 2021 such as welding, plumbing, and pre-engineering courses. Our goal is to recruit more students at this site.
