Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I pick and choose which classes my son/daughter takes?
No. Students will sign up for either Phase One (carpentry, coatings, plumbing, and automotive) or Phase Two (electrical, welding, culinary, HVAC). These four “modules” will make up the entire school year.
2. How old does a student need to be to participate?
Our program is geared toward 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. Most students will be 15 or older although some have started the program at age 14 and done well.
3. If I miss my Monday class, can I come on Wednesday instead?
Probably not. Not all groups will be learning the same trade during the same 8 weeks. If two groups happen to be learning the same material during the same 8 weeks, we might be able to accommodate a make up class, but only if another student will be absent creating an open slot. We keep classes at no more than 8 students at a time.
4. Can my child be in the same group as his friend?
We have managed to accommodate friend or ride share requests over the years. Be sure to make note of that in your registration paperwork or by special request via email.
