The Regional Career & Technical Center is located within Coventry High School. The Center provides instruction with state of the art equipment in real world lab facilities. Four of the eleven programs provide real-world practical work experiences for students by operating businesses that are open to the public. Under the supervision of licensed professionals and certified teachers, these student-run businesses include the Automotive Shop, Cosmetology Salon, Knotty Oak Room Restaurant, and Graphics Print Shop. In addition, the advanced carpentry students perform work on and off campus, participating in live construction projects. These programs prepare students for industry certifications and licensing exams, as well as college credit with participating technical schools and colleges. The Center currently offers Automotive/Marine/Diesel Technology, Carpentry/Construction, Computer IT/Game Design, Cosmetology/Barbering/Nail Tech, Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Ed, Graphics Communications, and Health Careers. In addition, three exciting new programs have been added this school year: Advanced Welding and Shipfitting, Criminal Justice, and Navy Jr. ROTC.
