The Media Center for Art, Education, and Technology, a department of The Monterey County Office of Education, house some of the top digital media broadcast studios in the state. MCAET programs and manages three 24/7 television stations that serve the educational and entertainment needs for Monterey County students and their families. Regional Occupation students (ROP), Alternative Education students, and the newly opened school for the arts, the Millennium Charter High School, all receive state of the art digital Media instruction at the MCAET studios.
MCAET TV (Comcast Channel 26, AT&T U-verse, Charter Communications and low power over the air channel 38) utilizes trained students to produce news, sports, documentaries, animation and electronic games for real life broadcast experiences.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, referred to the MCAET studios as one of “The Best in the State”, and the Career Technical Education division of the California Department of Education named MCAET and the Millennium Charter High School one of eight statewide “Career Education Demonstration Sites”. MCAET TV has piloted several very popular and entertaining new programs, including a joint production with the MCHS “People and Places” that focuses on area issues like water and transportation, or Rockbox featuring local musical talent, or animation special series “Short Sighted”, and many more.
MCAET and The Mission Trails R.O.P. program recently announced an exciting new collaboration, entitled "The Mission Trails Digital Media and Television Network", which will feature student produced programming. These programs will demonstrate the excellent work being accomplished in our schools in the CTE Pathway, Arts, Media, and Entertainment.
