Northeast Metro Tech exploratory Saturday program to return

Superintendent David DiBarri is pleased to share that Northeast Metro Tech’s Saturday Program will return beginning in December, giving non-Northeast students from the school’s sending communities an opportunity to explore its career technical programs. 

Students in grades 9-12 who reside in any of Northeast’s sending communities — Chelsea, Malden, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Revere, Saugus, Stoneham, Wakefield, Winchester, Winthrop, and Woburn — are invited to attend the Saturday program. 

Now in its seventh year, the program enables students who are not enrolled at Northeast to learn more about the industries covered by its career technical education programs. Northeast offers this opportunity free of charge thanks to generous funding from the Cummings Foundation.

The program takes place over three separate four-week sessions, taking place on Saturdays from early December through March. Students are encouraged to attend sessions based on their areas of interest. Each session will feature different Northeast “shops.”
