Career and Technical Education

Student photoThe Capital Region Career and Technical School (Career & Tech) offers more than 40 programs of study at our campuses in Albany, Schoharie and the Mohonasenasen Center for Advanced Technology, and in off-campus classrooms.

We also an Adult & Continuing Education program which includes TASC (for high schools students and adults) and ESOL classes.

Career & Tech works closely with component school districts, employers, colleges and the communities we serve to prepare students to be college and career ready. We also serve the needs of the rapidly changing regional workforce with programs that incorporate the latest technology and skills needed for the 21st century.

We emphasize a project-based learning approach to instruction where students are pulled through the curriculum by an authentic problem that creates a need to know the material. Partnering with business and industry in this area, we can help students understand that knowledge, thinking, doing and contexts for learning are inextricably tied. Through standards-focused projects, our goal is to not only prepare our students for post-secondary education, but also to prepare them for the global workforce. We have infused green technology instructional modules in our Construction Trades programs.

Career & Tech is approved to qualify students for CTE-Endorsed Regents Diplomas by completing a rigorous State Education Department program review process. Our teachers are state-certified educators who are also experts in their career fields. Our more than 300 business and educational partners keep us abreast of trends and provide students with unmatched opportunities for work-based learning and earning college credits. Team teaching helps our students connect academic and career learning and earn integrated credit.

Career & Tech is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, is operated by the Capital Region BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) and regulated by the NYS Education Department.
