A brochure of our school is mailed home in early fall to every freshman in our participating districts (Fairview, Fort LeBoeuf, General McLane, Girard, Harbor Creek, Iroquois, Millcreek, North East, Northwestern, Union City, Wattsburg). We hope this brochure sparks conversations at home and motivates reflection on career interests. The information in this discovery tool is intended to equip each individual with questions and ideas in preparation of the next steps in the process.
Every fall freshman in each of the 11 participating school districts are given the opportunity to complete a career interest survey that will help them discover the interests and talents that may apply toward a career major. Then throughout the month of October, the recruitment visits each freshman class to exhibit and answer question about the career majors we have to offer.
As a freshman in any of our 11 participating school districts (Fairview, Fort LeBoeuf, General McLane, Girard, Harbor Creek, Iroquois, Millcreek, North East, Northwestern, Union City, Wattsburg) a showcase of our school is available to you in November. This is your first opportunity to get a view of what a technical education is. During our showcase you will have an experience in career and technical education tailored to your talents and interests by selecting three career majors that reflect your personality, to explore. Remember to fill out the feedback at the end.
A little bit later in November, we open our school for an evening of excitement to the freshman that toured and would like an opportunity to revisit our facility. This is a family event so you can share what has inspired you with those that support you. At this open house our entire faculty await your arrival with exibits in their labs to further introduce you to their expertise and showcase the progress of their current students.
Applying to a career focused technical education with the Erie County Technical School is as easy as visiting the Guidance Counselor in your School District. There is an application and an easy process your guidance counselor can quickly walk you through.
