Cumberland County Technical Education Center has launched a promotional campaign to let county residents know about the new full-time county vocational-technical high school, currently under construction in Millville and scheduled to open in September, 2016.
The campaign, entitled Get Ready, is designed to educate interested eighth grade students and their parents or guardians about the application process for the new school. It features the school’s new logo and photographs of prospective students on the construction site.
“This new school will change lives,” said CCTEC Superintendent Dr. Dina Elliott. “It will offer promising futures for many individuals as well as for local business and industry. That is the basic premise behind our campaign, which reminds people to ‘get ready’ and prepare for something great!”
According to Dr. Elliott, a photograph of children of varied ages on the current construction site has been incorporated to convey the message that this new resource will serve the needs of Cumberland County residents for many generations to come.
The campaign will combine several communications platforms, including print, digital media and videos, to ensure that parents and students know that attendance at one of the upcoming information sessions, to be held at Cumberland County College’s Luciano Conference Center, is an application requirement for the high school.
“Attendance at the information sessions is mandatory for prospective 8th-grade students interested in receiving an application to attend the new high school next year,” Dr. Elliott said. “We encourage any interested families to visit our website to register for one of these five sessions and learn more about the school’s offerings and important application information and related dates.”
There are five scheduled sessions for the fall to be held on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings. The first information session is on Saturday, September 19, and the last information session is on Saturday, December 5. Interested applicants and families can register for the sessions on-line at CCTEC’s website.
