ABTech Community College


Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College is dedicated to the success of students and communities. Our college provides meaningful teaching and learning in a curriculum, continuing education, and workforce development environment committed to Respect, Integrity, Support, and Equity (RISE). 

Our Career and College Promise Program offers structured opportunities for qualified high school juniors and seniors to accelerate completion of college certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry-level job skills.


A-B Tech is excited to partner with the United for Youth Network and continue engaging with young people to provide them with an education system that supports their development, promotes a sense of connection within our community, and prepares them for a better future.
