The Hannaford Career Center offers 12 technical and four foundational programs. Our programs are divided into the following Academies:
the Career Center offers programming for both high school and adult students of Addison County in Vermont. The majority of our high school students come from Middlebury, Mount Abraham, and Vergennes. We also enroll students from private schools and high schools in the greater region (Otter Valley, Rochester), as well as home-schooled students. Our adult programming offers personal and career enrichment with flexible evening and weekend hours.
The Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center Regional Technical School District (PAHRTSD) Board is made up of representatives from each of the school districts and from the Workforce Investment Board.

Our English course, Technical Communications, is offered to Center students who are at the Center for the full day. It meets 40 minutes daily for the full year and students passing the course receive 1 credit. Technical Communications targets the four areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Our emphasis remains on effective communication with fiction and non-fiction reading and writing, skillful listening, and confident speaking. Students also complete a career portfolio in their field of interest. View the syllabus and curriculum for Technical Communications here.
Students seeking enrollment in our technical programs need to be recommended by their sending school counselor, have an acceptable attendance record, meet any pre-requisites required for the program to which they are applying, and have a four-year plan in place to ensure they meet graduation requirements.
