Nashoba Valley Technical High School is a public, four-year, career-focused high school located on Route 110 in Westford, MA. Following a $25 million renovation and expansion, its service area covers 14 communities including the seven District towns of Ayer, Chelmsford, Groton, Littleton, Pepperell, Shirley, Townsend and Westford.[1]

Programs and Studies[edit]

At Nashoba Valley Technical High School, students get ready for college as well as a career. On a “week about” schedule, students alternate between one week in academic classes and one week in their technical program throughout the school year.

Each technical program has the support of a unique Program Advisory Board made up of business leaders, owners, entrepreneurs and representatives from colleges and universities throughout the region.

Dual Enrollment[edit]

The Dual Enrollment Program is available to any junior or senior who meets the criteria adopted by both the State and the District. The program allows a student to attend Middlesex Community College, Mt. Wachusett Community College, UMass Lowell or Fitchburg State University on a full time basis, while still enrolled as a high school student. The student’s family must be prepared to pay for tuition, fees and books, as well as provide transportation.

Once the student qualifies for Dual Enrollment, a meeting is scheduled with both the student and parent to sign a Dual Enrollment Agreement and complete a Dual Enrollment Application. The student will then take a placement test at the college. This placement test is required for all incoming students. If the student does not meet the Dual Enrollment requirements for that school, he/she will not be allowed to go out on Dual Enrollment for that college.
