Our Mission

Biddeford Regional Center of Technology’s mission is to ensure that students acquire academic, career and industry-recognized technical skills that will prepare them for successful entry into the workforce and post-secondary education.

BRCOT provides career and technical education for students from Biddeford, Kennebunk Old Orchard Beach high schools and Thornton Academy. Training an educated workforce is key to developing a successful and productive community and economy.  Through our career clusters, pathways and programs, we empower students to develop the attributes and skills necessary to become successful citizens, workers and leaders. 


BRCOT students have access to a rigorous curriculum, hands-on learning, career pathways, articulated college credit with Maine's postsecondary institutions, national industry certifications, employability skills, safety training and technical preparation.   A majority of the graduates continue their training and education while some prefer to enter full time employment.
