Grand River Technical School lies in the heart of a rich agricultural section of the state and is the largest community in north central Missouri. The 2022 Census lists Chillicothe's population as 9,025, but we are also blessed with support from surrounding towns in our area. We are located 90 miles northeast of Kansas City and at the intersection of U.S. Highways 36 & 65. We are close to many modern industries and employment opportunities for our graduates. The community provides strong support for the school and its students with private housing and part-time jobs.
GRTS provides needed technical training programs for secondary students and post-secondary students. It is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE), approved by the Missouri State Department of Education as an area school, and is operated by the Chillicothe R-II School District.
Financial Aid is available to those who qualify through the Pell Grant, Missouri A+, G.I. Bill, and Vocational Rehabilitation.
