8th Graders from Martin and Riverside Visit the CTC

On January 5th & 6th, 8th graders were bussed from Martin and Riverside respectively to tour the CTC Program classrooms and Labs at EPHS. This was a school-day field trip to see our Career and Technical classes in action and learn more about how to apply for a program that interests them. The 3 hour trip for each school included a brief presentation by CTC Director Mr. Hanlon in the auditorium regarding the benefits of Career and Technical Education and information on how to apply. Then, in groups, the middle schoolers visited each of our 11 programs for about 10 minutes each before returning on the bus to their school. This visit piqued the interest of many 8th graders who came back with their parents to the evening Open House.

EPHS Open House for Incoming Freshmen; a Huge Success!

On Thursday evening , January 12th, EPHS opened it doors for incoming Freshmen and their families from 6-8pm. Over 250 8th graders came bak to EPHS for one more chance to visit program classrooms and labs, this time with their parents. Additionally, student and faculty representatives of over 25 of our Academic Departments, Athletic Teams, and Extracurricular Clubs filled our school cafeteria with boots and demonstrations in an effort to recruit students for next school year, and help our incoming Freshmen to be aware of all that is available to them when they arrive here as students in September.

Applying to a CTC Program

The application for admission to the Career and Tech Center will be open on our website,, beginning on February 1st and will close on March 15th. Students may apply any time between those dates, and all applications will be considered equally regardless of when, within the application window that they are received.

As part of the application, student will be asked to write a cover letter explaining why they would like to join the CTC program they are applying for. That letter will be the primary consideration in acceptance. We will begin to review all applications on 3/16 and notify applicants of acceptance in mid April.
