Building Trades programs

Building Trades students at AEC build a tiny house each year. This type of hands-on, real-world experience is the cornerstone of the education that students get from Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES programs.

The FEH BOCES team is also currently selling a modular house being built at North Franklin Educational Center in Malone.
