As a stand-alone strand of the MTS High School, the Trade Skills Academy is committed to preparing students for a career in the fields of Carpentry,Woodworking, and Building Maintenance. At Trade Skills, we value strong academics and dedicated attendance – and our students are school leaders in both grades and behavior.
Building Maintenance: Students are instructed on basic wiring, plumbing, painting, wall repair, and all other aspects of the care of a commercial building
Advanced Woodworking: Students learn to craft complex pieces of furniture and cabinetry. Past projects include book shelves, toy chests, and benches.
Intro to Carpentry: Students learn basic construction and wiring. Each semester, students construct a free-standing tool shed with a finished interior and working lights and electrical outlets.
Internships: After completing a year of academy classes, students move into internship positions with MTS’s community and industry partners.
