LACONIA — The Huot Career and Technical Center will hold a "Prospective Student Open House" on Thursday March 13 from 5-7 p.m. High school aged students and their parents are highly encouraged to attend this informational event. The Open House will provide students an opportunity to meet instructors and current students. Tours will also be available. Students from Belmont, Franklin, Gilford, Inter-Lakes, Laconia and Winnisqaum Regional High School are eligible to attend the center during their junior and senior years.
In the spring of 2013 the Huot Center opened the doors to a brand new career and technical center adjacent to Laconia High School. The multi-million dollar project has created a unique community resource for students to explore their career aspirations. The new facility features programs ranging from Auto Technology and Building Trades to Biotechnology and Multimedia. For 2014-2015 the Huot Center will be offering 12 different concentrations including new programs in Resort and Recreation Management and Law Enforcement. With a total enrollment of just under 500 students, many Huot programs are competitive and students are encouraged to apply early.
A complete listing of Huot classes can be found by visiting www.huotech.org.
