Ella T. Grasso Technical High School, part of the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System, is offering a limited number of seats to grade 11 and 12 students to participate in a accelerated career training program.
The Career Academy operates in partnership with local high schools. Students attend their sending school for academics in the morning, and then are bussed to The Career Academy for afternoon Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes.
The Career Academy program will graduate students with three (3) CTE credits towards a high school diploma and industry-recognized credentials in one of two in-demand trade areas: Digital Media, Mechanical Design & Engineering Technology (MDET).
The Career Academy program gives students a jump-start on their career by preparing them with technical and employability skills aligned with entry-level industry positions.
