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.
Our most recent placement report validates the relevance and quality of the technical, academic, and career preparation provided by our schools:
- 95% of the recent graduates available for employment were employed.
- 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.
