FISHERSVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Valley Career and Technical Center hosted an open house on Thursday, April 4.

The event comes after two days of TechFest, in which area fifth and eighth graders got to see all of the classes that will be available to them when they’re juniors and seniors.

Students can choose from over 21 programs, including welding, precision machining, computer systems technology, and the Teachers for Tomorrow class.

Plus, four nights a week, the center is open to adults.

"We've had some females that have taken an introductory to wood class before,” Darla Miller, the center’s principal, said. “We've offered in the past some classes that females might be interested in, how to do car repair. We offer technical math classes, some business classes, pharmacy tech, dental."

Miller says Valley Career and Technical Center’s goal is to give high school students and adults an opportunity to explore careers and get some training before heading out into the workforce.
