The Carpentry program prepares students for careers in construction-related fields by developing their skills in building construction and woodworking techniques.  Through classroom projects, and actual “live” work in both the school and community, students learn such skills as installing roofs, windows, and doors, framing, constructing footings and foundations, and all aspects of house construction.  While developing these skills students move through the different phases of project-planning including blueprint creation and reading, estimating costs and creating material lists, creating work schedules, and completing tasks on time.  Students will complete the Carpentry program with the expertise necessary to enter directly into the workforce or pursue further education
