Dorchester Career And Technology Center Programs Flourish
Situated between Cambridge-South Dorchester High School and Maple Elementary School, the Dorchester Career and Technology Center provides 17 programs of study within the 10 Maryland Career Clusters Framework. According to the Maryland State Education System Career Clusters are groupings of interrelated occupations that represent the full range of career opportunities. By connecting educators and employers, career clusters provide a common framework to help ensure Maryland has a high-quality workforce that attracts and retains businesses and enhances local economic development.
Currently, DCTC supports 294 high school students in grades 11 and 12 from Cambridge South Dorchester High School and North Dorchester High School. Anna Howie, DCTC Principal, said, This is an amazing accomplishment, since the district has 549 students identified in these grade levels. This means DCTC supports more than 50% of the student population in those grade levels.
The Career and Technology Center also participates in the Maryland Youth Apprenticeship Program. There are 8 students in the program. Students are currently working with GDK-USA, Chamber of Commerce, Quevera, and Choptank Transport. DCTC is constantly bringing new businesses into the program and are recruiting students for the following semester.

Pfc Coalition Partnered With Dorchester Career And Technology Center To Launch An 8
For Immediate Release
People for Change Coalition
The PFC Coalition was pleased to form a great partnership with the Dorchester Career and Technology Center . The Summer Career Enrichment Program was an 8-week pilot program for 100 middle school students in partnership with the People for Change Coalition, Mid-Shore Regional Council, PFC Black Chamber of Commerce, Dorchester Career and Technology Center and North Dorchester Middle School during the summer of 2021.
Virtual meetings were held in June with the PFC Coalition, PFC Black Chamber of Commerce, DCTC, Mid-Shore Regional Council and the North Dorchester Middle School staff to discuss various program options. The goal was to find creative ways to fund the program through grants, sponsorship, and in-kind support.
The program successfully launched on June 21, 2021, after the PFC Coalition was quickly able to identify instructors through partnerships from our members from Black Cyber Security Association, Blue Cheetah, Strategic Technology & Solution, and the Tri-County Chess Corner.
The SCEP provided a unique public, private partnership with nonprofit, education, business, and community partners. The program was designed to target middle school students and students of color in the rural part of the state of Maryland while exposing them to career options that are of high wage and are in high demand.
The students also took part in a variety of hands-on activities which included taking apart and rebuilding 10 PCs.

FEDERALSBURG – Dorchester Career and Technology Centers student chapter of the American Welding Society, led by teacher Chris Baker, recently visited M and M Carnot Refrigeration in Federalsburg to get a first-hand look at what is expected in the field as a welder.
Students toured the facility, learning about commercial/industrial refrigeration, as well as opportunities in the company. They met with company owners, managers, inspectors and welders, as well as three of the four former DCTC welding students now employed there: Austin Kimmey Payton Thomas Gavin Mowery and Shane Hallbrook .
M and M Carnot is an international company with a customer base of household names, including well-known meat distributors and LEGO Corporation, a statement from the school said.

Dorchester Career And Technology Center
The new Dorchester Career and Technology Center is a product of the design efforts of Hord Coplan Machts architects, landscape architects and site planners. A feasibility study by the team determined the best solution was to build a new facility rather than re-use the schools existing building. To guarantee the highest State funding, the owner asked the team to map out how curriculum needs could translate into the new building. The resulting design also serves as a model for future career tech-focused high schools. The 97,000 sf facility is located adjacent to Cambridge-South Dorchester High School.
The diverse and complex programmatic needs of a state-of-the-art career technology center demands a stimulating environment for students, staff and community. At the same time, it must accommodate four career clusters, organized into 18 separate programs, Construction, Transportation, Consumer Services and Information Technology enabling students to identify and integrate within the larger school.
Lt Gov Brown Tours Dorchester Career Center
EducationDorchester Career and Technology Center
The $2.9 million was included in the fiscal year 2012 capital budget and was part of the nearly $14.9 million state funding for the project since 2008.
While attending college remains a goal, it is not necessarily for every student coming out of immediately, said Brown. We certainly want to make opportunities available at the same time ensuring that all of our students that graduate high school have the skills to compete in this economy. Thats why the work here at the career and technology center is so important.
