"The Central Vermont Career Center will provide a supportive learning environment that encourages everyone to value themselves and others, to attain their highest level of achievement, and to recognize and prepare themselves to meet future opportunities."







We believe that it is vital to the success of every student that they have the opportunity to acquire occupational and career, academic, and social skills within their chosen Technical program.



We believe that a safe, structured and respectful learning environment is the climate most conducive to successful teaching and learning.



We believe that the staff must provide adequate opportunities in academic, technical and life long learning skills; these skills should be provided in such a ways that engage the student in real world activities that are relevant to their career choices.



We believe that the best possible student achievement is based on uniformly high expectations, quality instruction, productive student-teacher relationships, and a school that consistently provides a safe, healthy and professional learning environment. Each member of our school is responsible for furthering this standard of conduct.



We believe that a dynamic education requires meaningful relationships between peers, sending schools, employers, advisory board members, post-secondary providers and families to ensure that the instructional staff, curriculum and equipment remains innovative, current and incorporates emerging technologies.
