‘Not your grandfather’s vocational school’

But for some who are interested in what the COT has to offer it’s often the parents who are the stumbling block. Some parents, Bonneau said, don’t think the technology center is appropriate for their college-bound child or their child who has high aspirations in the work force. To that kind of thinking, Bonneau said, “This is not your grandfather’s vocational school. The technology high school setting of today is focused on academic rigor, work ethic and people skills that traditional high school students are often not exposed to. Our students graduate with industry recognized certifications and technical certificates they can put to work right out of school or potentially carry over as credits in college.”
