Adults & High School Juniors and Seniors

This program prepares students to use design principles to solve graphic design problems and communicate visual messages to the intended audience in innovative ways. They conceptualize and develop images for specific commercial or promotional needs. Students plan how words and images are presented in printed and digital formats including: identity packages, annual reports, advertising campaigns, magazines, books, posters, brochures, packaging, newspapers, promotional products, letterheads, greeting cards, CD covers, and invitations, and much more. They will learn to be skilled in various design software including page layout, photo manipulation, and illustration. They will also be skilled in developing unique, innovative, and effective solutions to design problems, and will have the ability to communicate and present concepts and solutions orally and in writing.

I highly recommend MNTC as both a student and as a parent! Great programs, fantastic staff, excellent instructors. What more could you ask for?

Tami Hanna Doiron, Parent

Growing up I was always told that college was the ONLY option to be successful. I was told wrong. The careers of tomorrow are not in Philosophy, Literature, or Political Science. Nursing, Sonography, Computer Programming, Cyber Defense, Computer Aided Drafting and Design, and CNC Machining are the careers that will continue to grow.

I wish I had gone to Moore Norman because they fully support their students, which is why over 95% of their students either work in their field or continue onto college for career-specific degrees.

Moore Norman is a great! The teachers and staff are nice and very informative. I also love the concept of the Technology Center. I wish I had this option when I was in high school!

I recently attended Connect Now at Moore Norman Technology Center. I was able to bring my son to this event. It was an amazing opportunity for him to learn about options available to him for the future. It was headed up by Barbara Rice, Disabilities Coordinator. Kudos to her and all the vendors for providing this awesome event to the community.

Shirlene Gathright, Mother

Excellent school with knowledgeable and helpful instructors.
