Vocational

Our vocational program offers an alternative way for students to prepare themselves for the job market and furthering their education. In addition to providing practical life skills, we strive to supply our students with the education they need to find success in their future.

 

All vocational opportunities promote safety, proper use and maintenance of tools and equipment, and show students how to plan and work together to accomplish tasks. Students get the opportunity to apply these learned skills during their daily ranch duties.
