Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center
Founded in 1971, the Career Center offers programming for both high school and adult students of Addison County in Vermont. The majority of our high school students come from Middlebury, Mount Abraham, and Vergennes. We also enroll students from private schools and high schools in the greater region (Otter Valley, Rochester), as well as home-schooled students. Our adult programming offers personal and career enrichment with flexible evening and weekend hours.
The Hannaford Career Center offers 13 technical and four foundational programs. Our programs are divided into the following Academies: Agricultural, Arts & Humanities, Business Services, and STEM. Our Arts & Humanities Academy offers secondary programs in Addison Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.), Design & Illustration, and Visual Communications.
We also have The Makery space. The vision of The Makery is to provide a place for people to imagine, experiment, network, collaborate, and create for personal and professional growth. The Makery will utilize the Hannaford Career Center’s infrastructure to provide all Addison County adults with a maker space. The Makery is a membership-based collaborative that currently offers an Engineering Lab/3D Printing, a Building Trades Lab, and a Costume/Sewing Lab.
