GC-Tech Student Clubs and Activities

Key Club
Key Club is a coeducational service organization for high school students. The club differs from other organizations, because the local Kiwanis Club, a club composed of professional people in the community, sponsors Key Club. The club is self-governing, where the members determine the activities. The club seeks opportunities to work with the sponsoring Kiwanis Club, Builders Club, Circle K Club, and/or K-Kids Club in joint service or fund raising activities. Through these various projects, GC Tech students learn what it means to "make a difference". Projects are carried out under the supervision of faculty advisor and a sponsoring Kiwanis Club. Overall, GC Tech's Key Club wishes to develop students' initiative, leadership ability, and positive citizenship practices.

National Technical Honor Society
Students are eligible for the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) based on their performance at GC-Tech. The NTHS participates in community service events that help to build character, a sense of personal satisfaction, and pride in community help. The students' excellence in the classroom does not go unnoticed. The NTHS hopes to create intelligent leaders who will continue to grow and progress in today's colleges, universities, and in any career and technical field.

* Eligibility Requirements: A student must be in good academic standing with their CTE class and the related academic classes with an average of 90 or above with 10 or less absences by the end of the third quarter in junior year. Students must be recommended by their CTE teachers to be in the organization and the students cannot have any negative disciplinary records and finally candidates must complete an essay. Students that qualify will be inducted in the fall of senior year. Students are required to maintain their NTHS status.

SkillsUSA
SkillsUSA is a professional student and teacher run organization operated through local career and technical schools and state, national, and international organizations. SkillsUSA exists within the career and technical commercial industry, which contributes to its prestige and respect as a CTE extra-curricular club. All GC Tech students become members and are encouraged to actively participate in SkillsUSA. The club is formed and advised by our staff. Our students become confident leaders and positive contributors to the club and to the school. As a result of many participating students over the past years, our GC Tech students have won over 50 Regional Awards, 15 State Awards, and one Silver Medal at the National Conference. The Levittown chapter of SkillsUSA continues to actively compete throughout the region, state, and nation demonstrating excellence.
