the Academy of Arts, Careers, and Technology

A friend and founder of the New England Association of Woodworking Teachers sent me a link to another program offering hands on learning. The Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology.
Principal Janis McCreary says, "It used to be schools like this were considered vocational education, training kids to go right into the workforce. The difference is we are a career-tech school, so our focus is to prepare the kids for not only the work place right away--if that's what they want to do but for a higher education." "After high school we feel we're preparing them more here because they're getting the hands on experience."
