When I was an eighth grader at Horace Mann School, I toured Tri-County and was surprised to learn I could get a head start on my career in the school’s Early Education program. Over the past four years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with preschoolers and toddlers in the Tri-County Children’s Center. Best of all, I’m pursuing my dream career while still taking Honors courses and playing soccer and basketball.
In the Early Education program, tomorrow’s teachers are working with toddlers and pre-schoolers. Around the corner, Culinary Arts students are preparing lunch for a restaurant patron who just received a haircut inside the Cosmetology Program’s teaching salon. Down the street, Carpentry students are putting the finishing touches on a home they built for the Town of Franklin. While this may sound very exciting, this is just a normal day for Tri-County students.
Walking through the building on a typical day, Tri-County often feels more like a school full of career-focused professionals than teenagers. Whether they plan to attend college or enter the workforce upon graduation, our students have goals and plans for achieving them. Our goal is to facilitate those plans by providing students with an education that fosters their strengths and abilities.
Tri-County offers many of the same opportunities as a traditional high school. A Tri-County student can take Advanced Placement courses, join a sports team, attend prom, and move on to a selective four-year college. What makes a Tri-County education different is the additional doors it can open. Our 16 Career Programs and rigorous academic courses equip students with the state-of-the-art technical skills and scholastic proficiency necessary to succeed in the twenty-first century workplace.
