FRAMINGHAM -Keefe Regional Technical School will host a career night open house on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
The 5:30 to 8 p.m. event is for grade 7 and 8 students and their families from their five communities of Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Holliston, and Hopkinton.
Career Night provides middle school students and their parents or guardians with the opportunity to explore a high school experience beyond that of a traditional high school. The evening is designed to ensure families learn all about the Keefe Tech high school experience and have all of their questions answered about career and technical education.
Attendees will take tours of the career and technical facilities, visit live showcase demonstrations lead by current Keefe Tech students, meet with the experienced and highly qualified team of career and technical instructors, engage one-on-one with academic faculty, and learn about the school’s many sports and extracurricular activities. Additionally, alumni and parents of current students will be available to connect with middle school students and their families.
“Successful students at Keefe Tech embrace the value of combining career and technical education with a dynamic and challenging academic curriculum,” explained Faith Chishom, Keefe Tech Admissions/Career Specialist. “They view their high school experience as a place to discover their passions and challenge themselves both inside and outside of the classroom.”

Keefe Tech Junior Natalia Rivera of Ashland, who is enrolled in the school’s health careers program, noted, “The faculty and staff at Keefe Tech make me feel like their main goal is to help me to be successful now and in my future.”
