Admissions Department News & Events

8th Grade Showcase Days are being scheduled this November for all in-district Middle Schools.

All Prospective Students please Save the Date!

Career Night Open House Wednesday, November 29 from 5:30-8:00PM

School Showcase
Students from the in-district towns of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, and Natick will have the opportunity to visit Keefe Tech during the month of November with their school.  Transportation is provided for each middle school by Keefe Tech, and visiting students will view and participate in presentations from our Student Ambassadors and their instructors. Each of our 15 Career and Technical Programs will host several visiting student groups. Eighth grade students will select two Career and Technical Programs that interest them, and the admissions team at Keefe Tech will assign them an additional program to explore. Our goal is for eighth grade students to leave with a better understanding of Career and Technical Education, and the opportunities available to them at Keefe Regional Technical School.

Career Night
Our career and technical programs open their doors to demonstrate who we are, and what we do! Live demonstrations, presentations and more! Potential Keefe Tech students and their parents are invited and encouraged to attend. Our students and staff look forward to sharing their expertise and experiences with you!
