Our two-year trades training programs provide high school juniors and seniors with hands-on learning and real-world experiences. Seniors attend our schools in the mornings, and juniors attend in the afternoons, spending the rest of their school day in their home districts.
In our CTE programs, students learn real-world skills to finish high school ready for the job they want, or with a head start on college. Our two-year CTE programs help kids earn college credit and job certifications along with their diploma.
Academic skills are strengthened through integration of math, language arts, science and social studies into both theory and practical application. And while we teach students the physical and theoretical skills behind a trade, we also work with them on soft skills like teamwork and communication.
