    A free public high school of choice for Bergen County residents, Bergen County Technical High School/Paramus falls under the auspices of the Bergen County Technical High School District. The Paramus campus provides students with a strong academic and technical foundation to pursue either postsecondary educational opportunities or entrance into the workforce upon graduation. Unlike most traditional public high schools, our students learn in classrooms and career-specific technical labs that mirror future academic and professional environments. Whether in physics or automotive lab, our students engage in collaborative interdisciplinary activities that foster interpersonal, communication, and critical thinking skills. Bergen County Technical High School/Paramus recognizes the need to prepare students for entrance into a highly competitive global economy that is continuously evolving. To that end, students are immersed in applied learning experiences that utilize the latest technologies, equipment, and facilities that will define tomorrow’s workplace.
     
    Full Time Program
    Our Full-Time Program provides both academic and technical educational opportunities for students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Upon graduation, all students are awarded a state-endorsed diploma. All academic courses meet the objectives and requirements set forth in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. 
     
    Shared Time Program
    Shared-time students attend the technical program for up to half of each school day, with the remainder spent in their local high school with modifications. Admission to the program is open to students with an I.E.P./504 Plan as well as general education students. The shared-time program provides students an excellent opportunity to learn a technical trade while completing most of their academic requirements at their local home district. All Shared-Time students are required to take an academic course at BCTHS/Paramus each year to help meet the graduation requirements of the local sending district. Registration for these courses must be done in writing from the local district’s guidance department or child study team.
