Career and Technical Education and New Vision Programs

Classes at the Irvin E. Henry (Syracuse) and Charles H. McEvoy (Cortland) education campuses are designed for students who are on a college track or planning an immediate entry into the workforce. The two-year programs provide state-of-the-art career and technical education for Onondaga-Cortland-Madison BOCES component school districts. In meeting that objective, our courses serve as an integral part of the curriculum offered by each of the component school districts.

Career and Technical Education emphasizes a broad spectrum of job specific skills using the most current business/industry-based technologies applicable to personal and career goals. These skills prepare students for the workforce and post-secondary study. Students may also earn high school core academic and college-level credit during their OCM BOCES program. New Vision is an exciting approach to program delivery for eligible high school seniors. It provides an in-depth overview of a chosen professional field by placing the student in an actual work environment outside of school. New Vision successfully integrates English and social studies into a meaningful curriculum based on a career interest. New Vision provides a sense of relevance to the senior year and a directed transition to the next stop of professional development.
