The mission of The Academy at the Gary D. Bixhorn Technical Center is to provide a safe and positive learning environment, addressing the academic and career needs of a diversified community of students through the efforts and abilities of a knowledgeable and dedicated staff. Our goal is to prepare students for the workforce and/or post-secondary education by building upon the strengths, talents, skills, and resources of peers, educators, industries, communities, and of the students themselves. The Academy programs encourage students to develop emotionally, intellectually, socially, and professionally. Through the use of innovative and traditional approaches to instruction, assessment and current technology, as well as the promotion of ethical values, we commit to empowering all of our students to be self-directed, creative citizens who will thrive in an ever-changing global community.

Recognition Day 2020
It is with sadness that I must share that the present circumstances have made it necessary to follow and honor all safety precautions and celebrate Recognition Day in a new way this year.
Therefore, in order to maintain the health and safety of our students, faculty, families and guests, we are creating a virtual ceremony that all will be able to view from home.
We realize and share in your disappointment at our inability to gather together for this celebration, but we are hoping that the BTC virtual Recognition Day 2020 ceremony will successfully honor all the efforts, adaptability, hard work and strength that you have demonstrated and make you proud. Once the recording is completed and posted, a message will be sent to all of our students and families, along with instructions on how to access it.
Heartfelt thanks to all for your hard work, your dedication and your unwavering support during this unprecedented time. We are, and will remain, most grateful.
