HFM BOCES offers parents and community a glimpse of programs and student work

2015 CTE Open HouseHFM BOCES students and their parents, as well as prospective students and their families are invited to the annual Career & Technical Education Open House from 5 – 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6. Visitors get a taste – sometimes literally – of the 15 programs of study available to area high school students.

Students in the Culinary Arts program serve delicious refreshments in the main cafeteria, while other programs offer demonstrations in their classroom and displays of student work.

Instructors will be on hand to welcome guests into their classrooms to answer questions and talk with parents about lesson plans, activities and what is required of students in their program.

HFM Career & Technical Education programs help students make career choices and prepare for their next steps after high school. Whether students graduate from high school and continue to college, enroll into additional technical training, or go directly to work, they benefit from exploring different careers and learning marketable skills.

Students in CTE programs build confidence and competence in their skills in specific career fields. Academic skills in science, math and language arts are also integrated into every technical program.

More than two-thirds of CTE students plan to continue their education in college following their successful BOCES experience. Many CTE programs have articulation agreements with colleges, universities and trade schools that enable students to earn college credit while completing high school.

HFM BOCES is located at 2755 State Highway 67, Johnstown, adjacent to Fulton-Montgomery Community College.
