The basic philosophy of the Tennessee Technology Center at Paris is that every citizen should have the privilege and opportunity to reach as high a station in life as he/she is capable of reaching or desires to reach. Recognizing that all people do not have the same background abilities or desires and therefore cannot be fitted into the same mold, the objective of the Paris Center is that each student is treated as an individual. Individualized, self-paced instruction is utilized to the maximum in all programs.
The Paris Center policy provides that a student may enter a program when a vacancy occurs, start training at his/her own level, and progress at his/her own rate to the level he/she desires within the limitations of the Center. Individualized, self-paced instruction provides the student with the highest quality instruction possible in the occupational area of his/her choosing.
The Tennessee Technology Center at Paris is a modern training facility which is designed to stimulate the occupational environment found in potential places of employment. The controlling purpose of the training offered is to prepare individuals for useful and gainful occupations, thereby enhancing the potential for employment.
