When you speak with Stafford Technical Center students, you may hear them say that five ingredients make up the “Stafford Experience.” You will hear the words trust, responsibility, fun, freedom and professional relationships. Students will point out that they are trusted to be responsible for state-of-the-art equipment as they take part in rigorous programing. Each curriculum is intended to support you like a ladder toward further education in college, or further training in your chosen field. Our programs either allow you to work toward college credit while you are in high school, or provide you with the opportunity to earn an industry certification or license that can be immediately relevant and helpful in opening doors to employment.
Most students will also point out that the “Stafford Experience” is fun. Students discuss the freedom they feel as they pursue independent projects and as they chart their own successes.
