State Grant Brings New Vocational Offerings to Haverhill High

Haverhill High School is launching two new programs, “Healthcare Occupations” and “Programming and Web Development,” as part of its Career (vocational) Technical Education (CTE) offerings next school year.

A $218,000 state grant from Governor Charlie Baker added the programs to “offer choice and opportunity to students who would otherwise be denied admission to a vocational program,” according to Haverhill Public Schools. Application for admission in the fall, or during the school year, is open to “any eighth or ninth grade student who is a student in Haverhill High School…subject to the availability of openings” and other criteria.  An information session for parents will be held at 6 p.m., Wednesday, June 15, in the library at Haverhill High School, 137 Monument St.

“CTE programs are sequence of rigorous technical courses aligned with industry standards. Students travel together as a cohort. College and career planning activities and work-based learning opportunities are embedded into all programs,” a spokesperson said.
