The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has awarded a $50,000 grant to Bucks County Technical High School. These funds will be used to help buy new equipment for students in their training and education pursuits.

Located on Wistar Road in Fairless Hills, BCTHS has students from throughout Lower Bucks. Its mission is to focus on “practical skills through high quality, integrated, standards-driven curriculum.”

“Giving students the opportunity to engage in hands-on training on equipment that is consistent with industry use and standards is paramount in ensuring they are prepared upon graduation with the skills to step into the jobs that are driving the Pennsylvania economy,” said Secretary of Education Pedro A. Rivera.

The money will go directly to equipment relevant to high-demand careers in the Bucks County area.

BCTHS is one of 32 Career and Technical Centers (CTC) and Area Vocational Technical Education Schools in Pennsylvania. The state awarded $1.2 million in total for these grants.
