Construction provides specialized skills related to a variety of occupations.  Emphasis is placed on employability, academic and occupational skills enabling student transition to the work place or postsecondary education. Residential Maintenance Carpentry Assistant  is the career major offered in this program. Students can participate in the student organization/club Skills USA for the Carpentry Pathway.

Students must take all four courses to complete the Residential Maintenance Carpenter Assistant career major.  Upon completing three credits, students will take the Carpentry KOSSA assessment or NCCER certification. KOSSA assesses a students' employability and occupational specific skills.  NCCER is a nationally recognized industry certificate the students will work toward throughout their four courses.  Students will also be able to attain their OSHA 10 card through the Industrial Safety class.  Students may intern their senior year once they have completed all four courses or have obtained three credits and are scheduled in their capstone class - Exterior and Interior Finish.  Students must maintain a "B" average, have good attendance, and be approved by the teacher and assistant principal. Although the student is not compensated for the work done through the internship, it provides valuable hands-on work experience in a supervised setting.
