Explore Keefe Tech

School Showcase

Students from the in-district communities 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 16 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.  This selection occurs prior to the on-site visit during a presentation given by Keefe Tech or with the Middle School Guidance Department.  Our goal is for eighth grade students to leave out showcase experience with a better understanding of Career and Technical Education and the opportunities available to them at Keefe Regional Technical School.
