Carpentry

Program Summary

Carpentry is the building blocks of the construction of a house. With projects like the building of the Elm Park Bridge, the carpentry shop at Worcester Technical High School is where all the magic happens

The four-year program is divided into five parts: Exploratory, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors following today’s industry standards. Where students participate in a trade program every other week

Co-op is available to qualified students that have excelled in the curriculum and with the help of local contractors we have a vast list of options.

Additionally, our graduating students have an opportunity to attend many area colleges such as Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Quinsigamond College, Wentworth Institute, and Worcester State College.
