Career and College Readiness

  • In our technical high school programs, students have the opportunity to embark on a dual career path.  For those who qualify, college preparatory academic subjects will permit entry into college upon graduation.  It is important to understand that technical high school education is not a substitute for an academic education – it is an enhancement and expansion of it.  An increasing number of our graduates are attending college each year, with on average 60% of graduates being accepted to post-secondary schools.

    Job Placement:

    Our most recent placement report validates the relevance and quality of the technical, academic, and career preparation provided by our schools:

    • Approximately 86% of graduates available for employment were employed in the career area for which they were trained.
    • 150 firms employed more than 235 of our graduates.  Roughly 77% of the employers were in Middlesex County.
