When students return to Brighton for the start of the 2021-2022 academic year, new classes will be added to our high school schedule.
Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses prepare students for the high demand careers with a depth of learning that builds real-world skills. Each course is part of a comprehensive program of study so that students graduate ready for a job, certification or technical school.
Students who take our carpentry or woodworking course will learn to differentiate lumber type and material, learn how workers protect themselves from hazards associated with construction, identify a set of drawings, symbols, scales, and legends, identify and use drawing dimensions, and of course learn to safely use power tools. This a hands on course where students will be building and assembling.
Hair Design / Hair Braiding
In hair braiding class, students will learn natural hair sculpting techniques, weaves, twist, and locks.
Culinary students can learn the art of pastry making, baking, catering, nutrition and diet issues as well as how to become a chef. Students in culinary arts also learn life skills such as studying for written driver’s license, balancing a checkbook, and sewing.
Weight Lifting and Weight Training
Brighton now has a full weight room. Students can enroll in Weight Training and learn about kinesiology to see if a career in kinesiology would be the right choice for them. Students can also take the class to stay fit and learn about how to work out effectively and safely.
A kinesiology degree can lead to a rewarding career spent using exercise techniques to improve people’s lives.
