Interested in attending McCann?
McCann Technical School offers two educations in one. Students receive training in a technical area as well as traditional academic instruction that matches the requirements and rigor of non-vocational high schools. State-wide vocational students traditionally outperform students from non-vocational schools in state-wide standardized testing. McCann students also graduate with the benefit of being trained for a high-demand, rewarding career after high school in a specialized technical area. Being prepared to enter well-paying positions in the workforce is a huge advantage for high school graduates as the need for qualified employees in many high-skill trade areas is in increasing demand. In addition to reviewing our website to learn more about our school we offer a number of other ways to learn more about McCann that our featured on this page.

Opportunities to Visit
Every year we host two events that allow prospective students a chance to visit and get a sense of what a vocational education is all about. These events are a great opportunity for students to explore or shops, meet with teachers, and learn about all the activities we offer at McCann. If you are unable to attend either of these events we are also willing to provide individual tours of the building to students and their families. This can be arranged through contacting one of the people listed in the "Contacts" list on this page. Specific information on the two annual events is below:
Showcase for Success 2019
Wednesday, November 20, 2019
An open invitation to members of the community and prospective students to come and tour McCann Tech and see our shops in action and meet with our faculty and staff. Demonstrations and presentations will be on-going through the evening and vocational instructors will provide opportunities for students to try their hand at various activities in the shops. Come and learn more about our programs, clubs, sports, and the school at-large during the open house event!
8th Grade After-School Exploratory Program
The 8th Grade After-School Exploratory Program is a 9 day program that allows prospective students to explore each of our 9 high school vocational programs in-depth. Students will actually go hands-on with our tools and equipment and experience first-hand what it's like to be a student in a vocational program. McCann provides busing from all in-district middle schools. Out-of-district students are welcome to attend as well but need to provide their own transportation. Busing after the program is also available to a number of convenient locations in our in-district towns. Full program details are contained in the registration paperwork link below. Students must register for the program and paperwork needs to be returned to the school. This program is an excellent opportunity for students to learn more about all the exciting career options available to students who attend McCann Tech.
