High School Students

Are you ready to get a jump-start on your career? You can earn your high school diploma and an associate degree in a world-class career-training program at the same time, tuition free.

Interested students must meet with an advisor* before they can be admitted into Bates’ programs as a high school student.

Our advisors lead the orientation* sessions. They will present various choices for high school students; lead prospective students through a work-session on career planning tied to our offerings, and provide an overview of the required forms and student information needed in order to successfully enroll at Bates’ Technical High School.

*In-person high school orientations are canceled until further notice. Please contact a high school advisor if you’d like to get started.
