Regional Career & Technical Center opens its doors to parents and community
Exeter - The Seacoast School of Technology (SST) in Exeter invites all area parents, community members, and employers to its annual Open House on Wednesday, October 5. A brief welcome with Principal Margaret E. Callahan will take place at 6:00pm, followed by classroom visits with teachers.
SST provides career and technical education programs designed to empower students by teaching them a tangible, marketable skill. Many of the programs are taught at the college level and enable students to earn college credit while completing their high school graduation requirements. Over 75% of SST students will continue their education after graduation, and their technical, hands-on training makes them uniquely ready for both college and career.
Students from Epping, Exeter, Newmarket, Raymond, Sanborn Regional, and Winnacunnet High Schools take courses in one of 12 different subject areas including Animal and Plant Science, Automotive Technologies, Biotechnology, Building Construction Technologies, Computer Programming, Culinary Arts, Digital Communications, Early Childhood Education, Health Science Technologies, Marketing Technology, Pre-Engineering, and Welding Technologies.
This year’s Open House will offer an opportunity to tour our newly renovated, state-of-the-art facilities that include a 13-bay automotive technologies building, aquaculture tanks, greenhouse, cutting-edge biotechnology lab, restaurant-grade kitchen and dining service facilities, and much more. Teachers and staff will be on hand to give tours of the campus and to answer questions about the unique opportunities available to students at SST. A special invitation is extended to middle school students and their parents to help them plan how a technical education will be a part of their high school plans.
The Seacoast School of Technology is located at 40 Linden Street in Exeter. Open House guests are asked to park either on the Tuck Learning Campus, or behind the former Exeter High School Annex. For more information about the SST Open House, please call at 775-8461 or visit www.SeacoastTech.com.
