Cooperative Education Program

The Cooperative Education program at Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School allows students to be employed in their chosen field before graduation. Students who have met CTAE requirements, are in good academic standing, and have favorable attendance may participate. Students alternate on 5-day cycles between work and classroom study. The program can begin as early as halfway through Junior year and continue until graduation. The Cooperative Education program allows students to gain actual work experience, assume responsibility, earn while they learn, and develop a favorable work ethic.
