For eighth grade teens that desire a unique learning experience, Blanson Career and Technical Education High School’s programs may be a good fit.
Students can study a skill or trade, such as animation, diesel technology, dental assistant, industrial robotics and much more. They learn a trade while completing academic core requirements.
The programs at Blanson Career and Technical High School will prepare a teen for a job directly out of high school.
This will appeal to students attracted to having a career once they leave school.
Students must apply to attend Blanson CTEHS. Applicants are considered based on a combination of factors including attendance, behavior and academics.
Once at the school, they can choose from more than a dozen vocational programs, including audio/video production, collision repair, computer programming and game design, dental assisting, hospitality services, HVAC and refrigeration, instrumentation and process control technology, machining, personal care technician, physical therapy and welding.
There is demand in industry for skilled workers in these fields.
Blanson CTEHS representatives will be available to talk with parents and students at middle school campuses on Open House Night.
The deadline to apply for the 2018-2019 school year is December 15, 2017.
Parents should consider a career and tech pathway for their child if the child has a particular interest in a career field. This will give them an advantage upon graduation.
“They not only get the work–based experience, they get the soft skills training for employability,” said Ben Ibarra, principal of Blanson CTEHS.
The campus may be an ideal option for kids who don’t like a traditional school environment. Blanson CTEHS programs can provide them with the motivation to succeed.
