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.
