The Bristol Technical Education Center provides secondary and post-secondary students with state-of-the-art training, instruction, equipment, and experiences in a variety of technical areas that align with the needs of Connecticut’s skilled workforce. Students graduate with industry credentials  and certifications, and are well-equipped with the fundamental knowledge to obtain employment in sought-after fields. Our trade programs are designed and supported by local and state industries that collaborate with the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) to ensure students meet the ever-changing need for highly-skilled employees.

Our school’s vision is to be a trusted learning institution promoting career and technical education to further the economic development, sustainability, and opportunities for the community we serve. Bristol Technical Education Center has a strong reputation and a tradition of achieving this vision with our students and school community. I am excited to honor that reputation and tradition as your Principal and will continue to strive for even greater successes for our students and school community.
