Vision Statement

 At Construction Tech Academy our students will have an opportunity to explore construction, architectural and engineering related careers through contextual, hands-on and rigorous curriculum that prepares all students for direct entry into college, apprenticeship programs, a job, the military or a career.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a project based learning environment that will engage and support students in learning while having a positive effect on the school, its students, and its surrounding community.  In this cross-cultural setting students work together to solved real life problems that are present in both the local and global arenas.  Large project based themes are created to integrate all subject matter as well as prepare students for (college and career) further education or professional path upon graduation.

1.  To improve student attendance and retention by succcessfully integrating academic and technical education in a format that structures learning around careers and students' interest.
2.  To improve the school outcomes of all Construction Tech Academy students, resulting in their attainment of the skills and competencies needed to pass the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE)
3.  To ensure that academy graduates are qualified for and prepared to enter and succeed in an apprenticeship program, college, the military or an entry-level job.
