Milford School Spotlighted For Its Focus On Technical Education: The future belongs to young people with real-world, valuable skills that will allow them to innovate and contribute to society's growth. That's why we are sharing a Milford Times' story on Milford Public Schools' career training, which starts in seventh grade. Milford requires its students to complete 15 credit hours in vocational classes, or at least three classes in a career or technical field, before they can graduate. Personal finance also is required. The school offers four general career and technical classes: industrial technology, business, agriculture, and family and consumer science. The MHS industrial technology program includes woodworking, robotics and welding, which offers dual credit welding through Southeast Community College. The dual credit is made possible through SENCAP, a partnership with the local Educational Service Unit 6 and SCC, that provides career academies for high school students.
