Sanford Regional Technical Center (SRTC)
YHS offers a variety of technical programs through the Sanford Regional Technical Center (SRTC). These programs provide students with hands on experience in programs ranging from Health Occupations to Internet Technology to Automotive.
Students who choose to enroll in a vocational program at SRTC spend half of their day at one of the satellite schools that house the programs. Currently there are programs at Marshwood High School, Noble High School, and SRTC. The following information can also be found in the YHS Program of studies.
The Sanford Regional Technical Center provides career training opportunities to students from eight area high schools in York County as they prepare for their lives after graduation. Whether a student's plans call for direct employment, post secondary schooling or enlistment in the armed services, their participation in a vocational program can be helpful:
- Employment bound students have the opportunity to acquire entry level skills, to work as part of a team, and to learn skills necessary to find, keep and advance within a job.
- Post-secondary bound students find it to their advantage to take a vocational program. It gives them an opportunity to explore, experience and determine a career direction before pursing advanced schooling. Completion of some programs leads to advanced placement standing at certain community colleges.
- If military service is in a young person's future, the Technical Center can help with reference materials and provide opportunities to meet with visiting service representatives.
- With the variety of opportunities and advantages available to young people at the Sanford Regional Technical Center, it makes good sense to get involved.
SRTC is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Applications for SRTC are available in the student services offices at all sending schools.
The center operates two sessions daily from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 11:15a.m. to 1:20 p.m. We are on an every day, year long schedule, however, there are times when special scheduling arrangements can be made. Ask your guidance counselor for details.
