Cumberland-Perry Area Vocational Technical School

Cumberland Perry Area Vocational Technical School (CPAVTS) serves students from fourteen high schools in Cumberland, Perry, York, and Adams County.  CPAVTS is an extension of your high school, offering intensive instruction in 22 career and technical programs. Students attend CPAVTS for half of their school day, taking courses in their technical program plus social studies.  Students attend their sending high school for English, science, mathematics, physical education, and other graduation requirements.


Typically, students attend CPAVTS beginning in tenth grade.  However, we will accept students in eleventh and twelfth grade if space permits.  Students coming in eleventh and twelfth grade may not be able to complete all Program of Study requirements, but they will gain an advantage in the college and career world compared to a student who has not experienced any career and technical education program.
