Congratulations to Keren Morales and Samuel Avila, who placed first and fifth respectively, in student presentations at the Pathways to Medicine Program at Brown University. The Pathways mentorship program pairs medical student mentors with high school students who are interested in healthcare professions.
This past month, Mrs. Maculan's freshmen classes raised funds to help Syrian refugees. In total, her classes will be donating more than $400 to the International Rescue Committee. Students were inspired to act after viewing a documentary in class.
At Davies Career and Technical, we are not a vo-tech school. We are creators of innovators for the twenty-first century. Our students see their education in action and put their technical training to use in internships, job shadowing, and placement opportunities through Davies’ dedicated School-to-Career office. And through their academic skills, they strive to not only pursue their dreams, but to one day become leaders.
According to a 2016 report from the Fordham Institute in Washington, D.C., the statistics are in and they show: students at career and tech schools are just as likely to pursue a four-year degree and more likely to graduate, enroll in a two-year college, and be employed.
Our mission is to provide a challenging academic and technical education within a safe and supportive environment which ensures every industry-certified graduate is capable of pursuing higher education and becoming a productive participant in today’s workforce.
