Career and Technical Education


Sophomores are introduced to the Career and Technical Education courses offered at BOCES through an orientation program.  Students may elect to attend BOCES in their Junior and Senior years.  Most courses are offered in a two-year certificate program but one-year certificates can also be earned. 


Special consideration may be given to a three-year Career and Technical Education program at BOCES for students with Alternative Education and Special Education needs.  Other options are the 1) Career Foundations - a sophomore program

2) Technical program taken over three years for students who require an extended pace

3) Technical program combined with Alternative GED prep studies over one or two years
