School Overview

Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) graduates are prepared for working and learning environments that constantly change. By adapting to new standards in emerging technologies, students acquire the necessary skills to succeed in the college classroom and in the workplace. By integrating STEM education into our academics and career technologies, along with guidance from industry leaders, students graduate with industry certifications or licenses, post-secondary certificates or degrees that employers use to make hiring and promotion decisions. These graduates are empowered to pursue future schooling and training as their educational and career needs evolve, positioning them to be the country’s next leaders and entrepreneurs. Talented academic and career technology teachers collaborate to design high-tech lessons. Our unique educational program prepares graduates for immediate employment, entry into apprenticeship programs or admission into a two- or four-year college. Each student graduates with a high school diploma and a certificate in their career technical field.

Students complete core academic subjects (English, math, history, sciences, etc.) as well as physical education, health, and computer applications. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit leading to a post-secondary certificate, associate, and/or baccalaureate degree through the UConn Early College Experience Program and Community College Partnership programs.

Career Offerings:
Automotive technology, Carpentry, Culinary arts, Diesel and heavy-duty equipment repair, Digital media, Electrical, Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), Information systems technology, Mechanical design and engineering technology, Precision machining technology, Welding and metal fabrication
