Builders Needed

If you like to work with your hands, Building and Construction Trades is the pathway for you! Here, students will learn basic skills required for a career in one of many exciting trades as well as prepare for college. In BCT we learn by doing. We begin with basic shop and site safety and how to use the essential tools used in construction. Then you will work with a team to design, plan and build projects ranging from small personal objects up to structures the whole pathway will work on. You will have the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals and solve real world problems as your core skills and ambitions grow. Plan on working hard, stretching your comfort zone and discovering what you can do with some real life marketable skills.
