Dear Vinal Students and Families,

Welcome to Vinal Technical High School!

As part of the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System, Vinal has delivered rigorous and robust technical education programs for over ninety years. Our unique curriculum prepares our graduates for immediate employment, entry into apprenticeship programs, or admission into a two-year or four-year college.

Vinal’s mission is to prepare all students for success in a post-secondary setting. Imparting skills and depositions for every student to be life ready with individual focus on work, job, career, and college readiness. Teachers, staff, and administration are committed to providing the best technical education experience by fostering a learning environment where students are authentically engaged and comfortable taking intellectual risk. Creativity and innovation are skills highly valued in real world applications and nurtured within the technology and academic classes.

We embrace our rich culture of diversity as students attend Vinal from over twenty-five surrounding towns. The students, staff, and community take P.R.I.D.E in Vinal and strive to uphold our core values of Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, and Engagement.

Families, we look forward to working in partnership to prepare and empower every student to succeed in post-secondary opportunities. Working together will strengthen every student’s opportunity for success beyond high school. Vinal’s goals for the 2020-2021 school year focus on nourishing a culture that promotes a safe and positive learning environment, embracing high expectations in teaching and learning, and to engage families and the community as educational partners.

I am thrilled to serve as your Principal, and I look forward to working with you.
