Why Ulster BOCES CTE?
Learn by Doing with Hands-On Instruction
In Career & Technical classes, students regularly apply both theory and actual skill. Upon course completion, students not only know how a task should be done, they’ve actually done it.
Expert Faculty with industry experience
Our experienced instructors bring extensive job service in their respective fields. Small classes in a safe, supportive, and relevant learning environment ensure that students get the instruction and experience they need to be successful.
Advisory committees of professionals from local business and industry collaborate with the Ulster BOCES Career & Technical Center staff to ensure that each program’s curriculum meets industry standards and that students are trained using cutting- edge technology and equipment.
Earn a Regents Diploma with Technical Endorsement
All of the programs offered at the Ulster BOCES Career & Technical Center are approved by the New York State Education Department and successful program completion leads to a distinctive technical endorsement on a Regents diploma.
Earn College Credits
Most courses at the Career & Technical Center have established articulation agreements with colleges, which allows students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school, saving time and money.
Succeed in College
In addition to career knowledge, students gain valuable time management, academic, and study skills that lead to success in post-secondary education. Data from the United States Department of Education shows that students with technical education backgrounds perform more successfully in college.
