Here is a bit about their program, from their website:
The mission of the Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy is to provide a world class academic and technical education that will prepare all our students for post-secondary success in the global marketplace. Putnam graduates will continue to be lifelong learners and productive responsible citizens.
Hospitality and Tourism Management (H&T) offers exciting opportunities for students from freshman year to graduation.
Over the past several years, our program has grown considerably—with 72 enrolled students by year end. Areas of concentration include: health and safety; sanitation; fundamentals of food service; hospitality sales and marketing; menu planning; restaurant management; dining room service activities; banquet and catering services; hospitality and travel destinations; customer service; rooms division management and operations; housekeeping; security and facilities management.
It is our goal to train students for beginning level employment and encourage hospitality management post-secondary education.
