Parent Information Night
Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM in the Auditorium
This is an event for parents of prospective students with a focus on the transition from 8th grade to freshman year at Keefe Tech.
We will present detailed information about course selection, career exploratory, postsecondary opportunities
and the advantage of Career and Technical Education.
Students from the in-district towns of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, and Natick will have the opportunity to visit Keefe Tech during the month of November with their school. Transportation is provided for each middle school by Keefe Tech, and visiting students will view and participate in presentations from our Student Ambassadors and their instructors. Each of our 15 Career and Technical Programs will host several visiting student groups. Eighth grade students will select two Career and Technical Programs that interest them, and the admissions team at Keefe Tech will assign them an additional program to explore. Our goal is for eighth grade students to leave with a better understanding of Career and Technical Education, and the opportunities available to them at Keefe Regional Technical School.
Our career and technical programs open their doors to demonstrate who we are, and what we do! Live demonstrations, presentations and more! Potential Keefe Tech students and their parents are invited and encouraged to attend. Our students and staff look forward to sharing their expertise and experiences with you!
A Keefe Tech application is available from the Guidance Department at all sending schools, the Keefe Tech Guidance Office (508-416-2270), or the Keefe Tech website.

Any grade eight or transfer application that does not reside in the in-district communities of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, or Natick must complete a Chapter 74 Non-Resident Tuition Application and submit this form to the sending school superintendent for approval. This form must be signed prior to April 1, 2017. Keefe Tech cannot accept a student from a non-resident community without having the sending superintendent's approval.
Grade Eight Applicants
All interested students can obtain a Keefe Tech application from their middle school guidance office, the Keefe Tech Guidance Department, or on our website. Completed applications should be returned to the applicant's middle school counselor or directly to the Keefe Tech Guidance Department.
All in-district eighth grade applicants will participate in an interview at their middle school beginning in January or February. Interview days will be coordinated between Keefe Tech's Admissions Department and each middle school guidance department. Our priority deadline for applications for the 2017-2018 school year is Friday, January 13, 2017. Students may still apply after this date, and acceptances will be issued on a rolling basis until programs are at capacity.
All accepted students will receive information about additional transition programming being offered at Keefe Tech including: Dinner with a Teacher Night in April, Accepted Students Day in June, and Freshman Step-Up Day in August. Our goal is for all accepted students to have the support to make a successful transition to high school. Please contact our Admissions/Guidance Department with any questions or concerns about the application process. We look forward to continuing to work with all eighth grade students and their families for a positive transition to Keefe Tech!
