Apply now for summer Construction Technology Academy at Perry Hall High
The Construction Technology Academy at Perry Hall High School is accepting applications for its July 5-29 session.
The four-week program for Baltimore County Public Schools’ juniors, seniors, and recent graduates emphasizes skills needed by electricians, HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration) technicians, carpenters, plumbers, and more. The academy is sponsored by Associated Builders and Contractors Baltimore in collaboration with BCPS and the Community College of Baltimore County.
Classes will be held Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will include lessons on construction safety, power and hand-tools, construction math, and the construction process. Hands-on projects in electrical work, plumbing, and carpentry will allow students to practice what they have learned.
The cost of the program is $150 per student to cover lab and supply expenses. The fee must accompany the application and will be refunded in full if the application is not accepted. Seats will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for qualified applicants. Applications are available from school counselors in BCPS high schools and at www.bcps.org/offices/cte/pdf/CTAConstructionBrochure.pdf and must be submitted by Friday, April 15, along with the results of a “5-panel” drug screen and the program fee.
