Students attend the Career & Technical Center for a full day, with a half-day in an academic prep/TASC class and a half-day receiving training in one of our career and technical programs.

Computer instruction is integrated into the highly individualized academic/TASC program. TASC replaces the General Education Development (GED) program as the primary pathway to gaining a NYS High School Equivalency Diploma.

Requirements to participate in the TASC program include having at least an eighth grade reading and math level and maintaining at least an 80% attendance level in the TAP program.
