Career and Technical Programs

Thetford Academy partners with River Bend Career and Technical Center and Hartford Area Career and Technology Center (HACTC) to offer technical education.

TA juniors and seniors are eligible to apply for admission to all programs at River Bend Career and Technical Center or some programs at HACTC. Most courses are offered in a two-year sequence, with advanced work and specialization offered in the second year of study. Three credits are granted for successful completion of a one-year technical program.

All two-year programs offer one program-specific embedded credit toward graduation requirements in English, Science, Math, Art, or Social Studies. Upon successful completion of both years of a career program, students are eligible for six credits—five elective credits and one in the embedded academic area.
