Welcome to Marion Technical Institute!

MTI prepares students for success
in college and in life!

Students will receive a high school diploma while also having the opportunity to earn impressive national certifications, scholarship money and college credits through Gold Seal programs. Working closely with Business Advisory Councils composed of local industry leaders, students will participate in work-based learning experiences and “hands-on” training activities while attending MTI.

MTI was recently named one of the best high schools in the nation.  Check out this article from US News and World Report.  The Ocala Star Banner featured MTI students in this issue of Career Resource.

On-Campus Wireless Laptop Access

Students may now bring their laptops on campus and make use of the wireless network here at Marion Technical Institute. This is a great opportunity to learn how to use a laptop as a learning tool in preparation for attending college or obtaining a job.

Please be aware that MTI & Marion County Schools will not repair, service or troubleshoot a student electronic device. Students are responsible for the security of their laptop and should not leave it unattended or share a locker.

It is a privilege, not a right to use your laptop on campus. A violation of County and School rules will be dealt with based on the guidelines in the Student Code of Conduct.
