It is the mission of the P. A. Hannaford Career Center to provide high quality technical, workplace, and continuing educational opportunities for the high school and adult learners of our region.
To accomplish that goal, we offer available space in all of our daytime programs to adult students. If you are an adult interested in applying to a daytime, semester-long technical program, please download an adult application form.
Full year tuition for a full day program is 23% of the announced tuition rate, or $4,621 for the 2015-2016 school year. Half-day program tuition is $2310 for the year. For adults who do not have a high school diploma, the tuition cost of attending is paid through State education funding formulas. Adults who do have a high school diploma are responsible for payment to cover the cost of tuition, but there are several resources available to help with this.
- VSAC (Vermont Student Assistance Corporation) offers Non-Degree grants. These funds are available starting in July and often run out before the following June. Be sure to apply for both Fall and Spring semesters as soon as possible, before they run out of money!

- Voc Rehab, a division of the Vermont Agency of Human Services, can offer tuition assistance and sometimes help with transportation or child care, for adults with disabilities. If you have an open case with Voc Rehab, contact your caseworker or call Susan Scott at 802-388-4671 to find out if you are eligible.
- The Hannaford Career Center Adult Technical Education Program offers a scholarship program that can pay up to 75% of any remaining tuition after you have applied to other sources. The application can be completed on-line at https://docs.google.com/a/pahcc.org/forms/d/12QEoGNKbb4HgPEqgDXgAJ3IQI7gRny3RbRqRwzAB-r8/viewform
