CTE Program Directory
The goal of the Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES Career and Technical Education center is to help high school juniors and seniors prepare for adulthood by focusing their studies on specialized classes. From auto body repair to welding, CTE is the ideal place for your child to excel in the classroom all while gaining the skills needed for the next step in life.
In 1948, the OHM BOCES began its mission to educate students in various pathways for high school graduation. In 2023, we will celebrate 75 years of preparing students to become leaders of the future. We have maintained active partnerships with the business community through our Advisory Council and program consultant committees. Our educational staff, area businesses, students and parents work together as a team to provide a meaningful educational experience for all of our students. This career and college readiness preparation includes on-the-job internship experiences, program instruction aligned to college curricula and college credit integration opportunities for students in traditional programs who meet select criteria.
Every year, we conduct a student survey to assess where our students are employed or attending college. In the past three years, nearly 96% of graduates have reported successful outcomes including gainful employment in their program field or post-secondary studies at a variety of technical schools, colleges and universities.
In addition to the career and technical programs and integrated academic courses that the OHM BOCES offers, we also provide New Visions courses that allow seniors to go on-site at participating businesses to learn about the field. More information about New Visions programs can be found on the pages below.
