The Essex County Vocational-Technical Schools' West Caldwell Tech Campus is a full-time academic program driven by the New Jersey State Core Curriculum Content Standards and is designed to provide all of the state-mandated requirements for high school graduation and admission to both two- and four-year colleges.
In 2008-09, students obtained the highest scores on state-mandated examinations in the school's history. In addition, the vocational-technical offerings distinguish the school from traditional high schools. West Caldwell Tech offers students the ability to obtain marketable skills in areas such as Culinary Arts, Cosmetology, Business Technology or Automobile Technology while obtaining an academic education.
As the only school in Essex County to provide a shared-time program, West Caldwell Tech welcomes students who have chosen to attend their local high school for academics and attend West Caldwell Tech for vocational-technical training.
