‘Excellence in Technical, Career and Academic Education’
Welcome to Sussex Technical High School’s Admissions Information Page. Thank you for considering Sussex Technical High School as your educational choice. We will strive to provide you with an excellent educational opportunity tailored to prepare you to be career and college ready.
Each fall, all current eighth-grade students are invited to attend an open house and a hands-on career half-day at Sussex Technical High School. Transportation for the career days will be offered from each sending middle school site as allowed by individual districts to assist with safety of all students wishing to attend. Alternate pickup locations may be designated should sending schools not allow Sussex Technical School District on-site to pick up students. The Admissions Office will communicate dates and times of all events.
The Saturday Open House will be scheduled for the first Saturday in November for students and their parents/caregivers. Registration begins at 8:15 am with opening presentation beginning promptly at 9:00 am. Career Days will be scheduled the first two weeks in December for students to visit while school is in session.
Individual tours will be scheduled throughout the year as requested.
