The Carpentry program provides students with an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of rough and finish carpentry.  First year students apply their skills to build barns and a garage, while second year students frequently help build a full-size house.  This Career and Technical program includes all phases of carpentry presented in a logical sequence.  Some of these include estimating jobs, blueprint reading, laying foundations, framing, sheathing, roofing, layout work, interior finishing, cabinet installations, exterior finish and safety skills.

See the Virtual Spring Open House for incoming Compact students participating in Carepntry.
