EEE and Athletics

Attention all Old Colony families,  in regard to the outbreak of EEE in Rochester, we have taken a proactive approach for the safety of our students.  The school grounds have been sprayed for mosquitoes.  Students who are waiting for rides after practice, must wait in the lobby. We are also enforcing a strict 6PM curfew for all practices to ensure students are safe.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Matt Trahan by email at mtrahan@oldcolony.us or by phone at (508)763-8011 x143.

Summer Discovery 2019

Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School is excited to offer our 3rd Annual 5-day Summer Discovery Experiences from July 15-19, 2019 and July 22-26, 2019. We have expanded our offerings to two weeks.

Get “Revved up” as you learn with your own issued tool kit in Automotive Maintenance; put your technology away and enjoy the outdoors as you compete in a variety of Fun and Games in our Sports Camps; explore the fields of Culinary Arts, Computer Science, CADD, Carpentry, Cosmetology, Welding, Electricity, Robotics, Engineering, and more. Tap into your creativity and passions. Create, connect, and inspire. All this and more!

Most morning and afternoon sessions are offered for students entering grade 5-9. To learn more about session descriptions please click on the green TICKETS button pictured to the right. We encourage participants to mix and match morning (AM) and afternoon (PM) sessions. Families are responsible for their own transportation.

Full-day participants are invited to stay with us for a supervised lunch between 11:30 and 12:00. Students attending both sessions are responsible for bringing their own lunch. Lunch will take place in our cafeteria. Supervision will be provided.

Summer Discovery instructors are members of the Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School staff.
