The Avenue News - - School News -

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.
