Principal's Message

Welcome to Bristol Technical Education Center.


The faculty, staff, and students are excited to welcome you to Bristol Technical Education Center!

We are a proud member of the Connecticut Technical High School System (CTHSS). Together we strive to become the best career technical education system in America.  In doing so, we maintain strong partnerships with business and industry to ensure that our career and technical programs remain current and responsive to the needs of the workforce.

Bristol T.E.C. is a small and supportive learning community that services students in grades eleven, twelve, and adult post graduates. Our students represent over 35 different towns. Our high school students complete their academic coursework at their sending school. While receiving a career and technical education at Bristol T.E.C., they can continue to participate in their sending schools’ athletic and extra-curricular programs. This experience culminates with students earning a high school diploma from their sending school, in addition to a CTE certificate.

Our unique educational model affords opportunities to students interested in pursuing meaningful careers in the areas of Automotive Technology, Electronics Technology, Precision Machine Technology, Culinary Arts, Heating/Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, and Welding and Metal Fabrication. In addition, we offer a variety of part-time apprenticeships and extension courses for adult learners in the evenings.
