The mission of Keystone Technical Institute is to provide useful education; one that matches the career goals of the student with the needs of the employers in the student's chosen field. To this end, the institute, through a competent and dedicated faculty, and well planned and always developing curriculum, insures the student will receive the necessary foundation to achieve their potential in the career they are pursuing. The institute, with an ongoing curricular evaluation process and constant feedback from our graduates, Advisory Committee and employers, keeps abreast of the technologies necessary for entering the working world. The environment established to achieve this mission is one that encourages a "hands-on" experience, for all students, thus providing a workplace atmosphere.
