CTC Logo

  • Prepares students for HIGH SKILL, HIGH WAGE, HIGH DEMAND careers

  • Fulfills employer demands for highly skilled and career ready workforce
  • Student can leave high school with college credits, at low to no charge

The Career Technical Education provided at the Somersworth Career Technical Center provides students an opportunity to develop the skills needed to be college and career ready. Our CTC programs provide the technical, academic and employability skills needed for success after high school. Our student's learning takes place in a lab setting - allowing them to experience learning through real-world examples and collaborative team work; while also learning rigorous academic skills. CTC programming is both rigorous and relevant for our students; having to demonstrate numerous course competencies and career readiness skills. Through thoughtful course planning as a student transitions to high school- CTE programs can be an important part of all our students high school experience. Please come and speak to someone in the CTC Department to hear about all the great opportunities our programming can offer you or your student!
