Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School

We have celebrated over 40 years of providing quality technical education to the communities of Belchertown, Granby, Hardwick, Monson, New Braintree, Oakham, Palmer, Ware, and Warren.

During that period, we have grown to over 650 students, built a major addition, increased our offerings to include 15 fields, and broadened our service area to more than 25 communities.

We currently are a school of choice.

"All students, regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or homelessness, have equal access to the general education program and the full range of any occupational or vocational programs offered by the district."
