• Join Us for Bring Your Parents to School Day

    Posted by Dr. Dennis J. McCarthy on 10/16/2018

    A letter was recently sent home to all parents announcing Western Area CTC’s first “Bring Your Parents to School Days” on October 24, 25 and 26, 2018. Parents will come to the school and work alongside their children in the morning or afternoon (depending on which session their child attends) according to the following schedule:

    October 24 – HVAC - Electrical Occupations - Carpentry - Masonry

    October 25 – Automation & Robotics - Auto Mechanics - Collision Repair - Machine Shop – Networking - Welding

    October 26 – Cosmetology - Culinary Arts - Health Assistant - Protective Services

    Safety glasses will be provided for all parents that are attending. Please dress like you are going to work in a career and technical center. No open toed shoes.

    Besides getting the opportunity to work alongside your child, you are also invited to enjoy a free lunch prepared by our culinary students and their parents. We will be serving spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, salad, cookies, and a beverage.

    If you have a criminal background clearance, please bring that with you. If not, be sure to bring your driver’s license for entrance into the building.

    If you have any questions or are interested in attending on one of these days, please call 724-746-2890, Ext. 115. I hope we get the opportunity to meet you and join you as you work alongside your children!

  • Another New School Year Begins

    Posted by Dr. Dennis J. McCarthy on 9/6/2018

    Even though many are sorry to see summer come to an end, the Western Area staff are excited that the students are back.

    All necessary safety changes to the building have been completed. If you have not been to Western Area recently, you will immediately notice the new safety doors. If you do plan to visit, be sure to have your Driver's License as we are now using the Raptor System for entrance into the building. Additional security measures include the placement of yellow cement pillars in front of the building and strategically placed security cameras around the campus. Our most recent security feature is the addition of a Western Area Police Officer. Officer LaSalvia will patrol the hallways, parking lots, and classrooms during the day when students are in class.

    We are adding some staff but are short a long-term substitute who must have teacher certification and an Industrial Maintenance Instructor who must have four years' experience in Industrial Maintenance. You do not need to be a teacher to apply for the Industrial Maintenance position; we will send you to IUP to get the needed certification. If you are interested in either position, please call me.

    A variety of great evening Adult Education classes will be starting soon. If you are interested in Dancing, Cooking, Baking, HVAC or Auto Mechanics, Western Area is the place to be. For more information, go to the top of this page and click on Adult Education.

    We look forward to a great, productive year and hope that you get a chance to visit the school and see the changes.

    And remember, keep Western Area in mind if you are looking for employment.
