Whether their interests lie in becoming a doctor, nurse, computer network administrator, lawyer, mechanic, chef or more, Capital Region BOCES has something to offer students across the region.

During a series of open houses over the coming months, those offerings will be put in display at the Albany, Schoharie and Mohonasen career and technical education program centers.

New Visions program open houses, where students and their parents can learn all about the New Visions: Health Careers and Law & Government programs are scheduled for Jan. 9 and
Jan. 22
in Albany.

New Visions is a one-year, honors-level program that turns area businesses and government buildings into classrooms for highly motivated, academically successful high school seniors. In
the programs, students learn through traditional methods (lecture, reading, research, writing
and focused study), group discussions, internships and rotations. Classes meet daily from 8 to 11:30 a.m.

The Jan. 9 open house is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the BOCES Central Administration offices, 900 Watervliet-Shaker, Albany. (Snow date Jan. 11), while the Jan. 22 open house is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. at the same location. The snow date for the latter open house is Jan. 25 and the snow date location is the Career and Technical School located at 1015 Watervliet-Shaker Road in Albany. For more information on the New Visions open houses, call (518) 862-4816.New Visions students

On Jan. 26, students and parents interested in learning about the myriad of programs offered on the Albany Career and Technical School campus are encouraged to attend one of the two open houses scheduled that day. The center will be open from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for tours and information on many of the approximately 30 programs offered. 

The open house is scheduled for Regents testing week when most students will not be in school in their home districts. However, many CTE students will be at school in their programs, thus allowing prospective students to see how classes are taught at CTE. For more information on the open house, call  (518) 862-4800.

On Feb. 5 and 6, the Schoharie Career and Technical Education campus will open its doors to high school sophomores in Schoharie county and neighboring school districts. Those schools have scheduled visitation times and will bring their students to the campus. Any parent interested in learning more about the programs offered is encouraged to call 518-295-3000 to schedule a tour of the programs. The Schoharie campus is located at 174 State Route 30A in Schoharie.
