EXETER — The Seacoast School of Technology (SST) in Exeter invites all area parents, community members and employers to its annual Open House on Wed., October 2. The Open House will be a drop-in event from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, with formal classroom presentations occurring at 5:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.
SST provides career and technical education programs designed to empower students by teaching them tangible, marketable skills. Many of the programs are taught at the college level and enable students to earn college credit while completing their high school graduation requirements. Over 75% of SST students will continue their education after graduation, and their technical, hands-on training prepares them for both college and career.
Students from Epping, Exeter, Newmarket, Raymond, Sanborn Regional and Winnacunnet High Schools take courses in one of 12 different subject areas including: Animal and Plant Science, Automotive Technologies, Biotechnology, Building Construction Technologies, Computer Programming, Culinary Arts, Digital Media Arts, Early Childhood Education, Health Science Technologies, Marketing Technologies, Pre-Engineering, and Welding Technologies.
Teachers and staff will be on hand to give tours of the campus and to answer questions about the unique opportunities available to students at SST. A special invitation is extended to middle school students and their parents to help them discover how a technical education can be a part of their high school plans.
The Seacoast School of Technology is located at 40 Linden Street in Exeter. Open House guests are asked to park either on the Tuck Learning Campus, or behind the former Exeter High School Annex. For more information about the SST Open House, please call 775-8461 or visit www.SeacoastTech.com.
