About Us

Mountain Institute gets Yavapai County high school students started on the path to a variety of exciting careers with training, college credit and multiple certification options.
Mountain Institute, a Career Technical Education District (CTED), does this by offering enhanced Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses that students take while concurrently attending high school. It’s not just for public school students either; we encourage charter school and home school students to get their careers started by enrolling in CTED programs.
