Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Vern Riffe Pike County Career Technology Center. Currently, the website is under construction with periodic updates and changes. This resource will allow you to access information about the exciting educational opportunities available at Ohio’s First Joint Vocational School Career Technology Center. We serve four associate school districts located within Pike County. They are Eastern Local, Scioto Valley Local, Western Local and Waverly City Schools. With an enrollment over 400, we try to meet the needs of our home schools by providing programs that fit the needs in our area.

We operate 14 programs and many academic classes. We have several secondary partners such as Shawnee State University, Hocking College, and Ohio University-Chillicothe just to name a few. Our senior classes over the past three years have received on average $200,000 in scholarships. This is a great accomplishment and recognizes the hard work of students, parents, and school staff.

Each school year brings new ideas and opportunities for our students. We will have at least 4 activity days at the end of each nine weeks. Students will have opportunities to win prizes and be apart of fun activities allowing all students to participate. We have our own bank and school store located in the new wing of the building. 

Many of our programs give college credit. Please make sure your child speaks with his/her teacher or guidance counselor about possible college credits in their vocational program.

Not only do we operate a successful secondary program, we also offer Adult Workforce Education Courses and ASPIRE services to Pike and Jackson counties. Our own Adult Learning Center is structured to serve Adult Workforce Education and ASPIRE students.

Ohio's Aspire programs provide FREE services for individuals who need assistance acquiring the skills to be successful in post-secondary education and training, and employment. Local programs offer classes at flexible locations, and on different days and times to meet diverse needs. All students are required to attend orientation, where an assessment is given to help determine the individual’s educational needs and goals.


The Pike CTC has a long history of partnering with local business and industry.We have advisory committees for secondary and adult programs that include business and industry representatives. Also, we have strong ties with the Pike Chamber of Commerce, SODI, OVRDC and our local WIA board.

Another exciting program we house is the South Region Pre-Service School Bus Training Program. This program allows those wanting to drive a school bus to train and be certified for that career. We also provide CDL training too.

With over 50 years of service, the Pike CTC much like it did in the beginning, still focuses on the single idea that “together we can do great things.” Thank you for visiting our website. If you have questions about any program we offer, please contact the Pike CTC secondary office at 740-289-2721or Adult Education and ABLE at 740-289-4172. Have a great year!
