Gold Star Students are recognized for doing great things, one small thing at a time. CKTC student accomplishments include but are not limited to industry-specific certifications and WorkKeys, perfect attendance, contest winners and students of the month.


What is WorkKeys?

WorkKeys recipients have completed their ACT WorkKeys assessments that compare their skills to the skills real jobs require. These scores help employers choose the most qualified candidates for their job openings. These CKTC student achievements are announced during the Gold Star Student Assembly.


What is Student of the Month?

Instructors nominate students who have shown a range of high-quality character traits. A committee then selects an adult student and a high school student for the honor. These CKTC student achievements are announced during the Gold Star Student Assembly.
