Career Education for High School
The Career & Technical Center offers dozens of high-tech training programs that lead to in-demand jobs . Graduates leave the half-day program offered at our state-of-the-art training facility in Port Ewen ready for college and the workforce.
Through a blended approach of classroom instruction, hands-on learning, and work site assignments, students build specific skills related to a career area. Our experienced instructors bring extensive job service in their respective fields.
Ulster BOCES collaborates with local business and industry to ensure that each curriculum meets industry standards and that students are trained using cutting-edge technology and equipment.
Students leave the program prepared to enter the workforce, post-secondary technical schools, and colleges. Graduates not only know how a task should be done, they’ve actually done it.
Data from the United States Department of Education also shows that students with technical education backgrounds perform more successfully in college.
