Natural Science Center


The Butler Tech Natural Science Center is located on a former 72-acre fruit farm on Route 63 in Monroe. The farm-like setting, coupled with top-notch facilities, provides you the opportunity to work in a real-world setting with one of our horses in Equine Science, with one of 30 different animals in Veterinary Science, or with industrial equipment and natural resources in Landscape Design and Construction. In all of our programs, you will spend the majority of your time in an outdoor setting.

Stop by and visit the Natural Science Center campus to see what’s in store for you. We know you’ll experience the uniqueness many of our students believe made a difference in their futures.

  • Academics

    Because of our low student-to- teacher ratio and knowledgeable staff, our students feel welcomed into a tight-knit culture in which the focus is individualized student achievement. We blend academics and career-technical programming into project-based learning with the goal of preparing students for the next step after high school.

    In addition to their field of study, students have access to general academic offerings including courses in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.

    All students also have the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. Because of the hands-on experience, many of our students earn co-op and apprenticeship opportunities while still in high school.
