Construction Trades Academy

Knowing that some workers first learn a trade while on the job, attending the Construction Trades Academy gives students a tremendous advantage when entering the workforce or moving on to college or a specialized technical school. Whether focusing on carpentry, electricity, plumbing/HVAC or welding and fabrication, students develop the skills necessary to create, assemble, install, maintain and repair. They also gain valuable experience through work in the classrooms, shops, the Student-Built House and at other work sites.

Unique to BOCES, the Student-Built House has evolved into an on-site “green technologies lab” where students learn the intricacies of solar panels, photovoltaic (solar) shingles, geothermal heating, compost heating and radiant floor heating. There is a growing emphasis on “green energy,” causing an increased demand for highly trained tradespeople, and instruction at the Construction Trades Academy prepares students for these career opportunities.
