WRCC Philosophy

The Windham Regional Career Center offers career and technical training that embraces a rigorous and relevant academic program.

The central purpose of the Windham Regional Career Center is to provide learning experiences that ensure graduates have the skills, knowledge and competency to successfully participate in the global workforce.  We promote the right of all learners to a free and accessible public education which is fundamental to a democratic society.

We develop life long learners capable of productive advocacy of their rights as workers, who recognize their responsibilities as employees, and who are engaged in their economic, civic, and career development.

We appreciate that students differ in level of ability, rate of learning, interest, and motivation and agree that all students can achieve.  We embrace the challenge of providing diversified and state of the art programs to ensure our students emerge from the educational process as skilled workers, competent technicians, and responsible citizens.  Our curriculum and student activity reflect our commitment to academic and technical excellence.

The Career Center

The Career Center is a regional career and technical school providing a diverse selection of career preparation programs for ALL students attending the Brattleboro Campus. The courses and programs are designed to allow students great flexibility in developing a course of study that supports personal and career development.

Career and Technical Education Programs

Career and Technical Education Programs are open to 11th and 12th graders submitting an application. Enrollment in a career center program is based on space available, school attendance, grades and an optional interview with the instructor. All programs are organized into career clusters with suggested high school courses to support student interests. Career Center programs meet a minimum of 120 minutes per day for the entire school year. Some of this learning will occur outside a traditional classroom or lab setting through projects; field trips; work-based learning and community-based activities. Students should be prepared for this project-based learning in order to achieve adequate proficiency and competence in their chosen occupational program.

Academic Courses

Academic Courses are offered by the Windham Regional Career Center. Mathematics and English courses are available to students before and after their program time. Brattleboro Union High School offers a full range of academic courses to Career Center students in accord with each student’s academic needs.

All students are encouraged to take advantage of these unique occupational exploration and preparation opportunities. Career Center programs are appropriate for students planning a two year college program as well as those students seeking a professional pathway requiring a four year degree. Many Career Center programs provide occupational preparation for students entering the workforce during high school or immediately following graduation.



The Windham Regional Career Center is committed to maintaining a learning environment free from discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability or sexual orientation.
