Nassau BOCES Barry Tech, Long Island’s premiere career and technical education high school, is opening its doors to all students with a passion for a hands-on career. The Barry Tech Open House will be held Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Following an introduction to the school led by administration, there will be self-guided tours of the state-of-the-art facility. You can preregister for the Open House at

Prospective students and families from Nassau County are invited to tour the campus at 1196 Prospect Avenue in Westbury, and meet with expert teachers, counselors and administrators. Students will learn about classes focused on their specific interests in more than 40 different career fields, ranging from Aviation and Automotive Technology, to Video Game Design and Veterinary Science.

Attendees can visit advanced classrooms and fully-functional shops designed to simulate real-world work settings. Learn about Barry Tech’s Summer program, offered through a partnership with Hofstra Summer Camps. There are a number of exciting offerings including, Culinary Arts, and Animal Care, to name a few.

Barry Tech courses provide both theory and practical application. Barry Tech teachers are experts in the specific subject matter they teach and are respected professionals in their respective industries. They are eager to share their skills and experiences, and they work hard to help students succeed.

“Students who attend Barry Tech benefit from hands-on training with instruction from teachers with experience from working in their respective fields,” says Barry Tech Principal Pete Dalton. “Our students can also participate in work-based learning and service learning projects that provide a real feel for the careers they are interested in pursuing.”

Barry Tech is part of “My Passion, My Career,” a major career and technical education initiative launched by the agency last summer. At a time when Long Islanders are struggling to find work, the need for skilled workers in a variety of industries is on the rise.

The prospective industry outlook for 2026 shows an increase in job openings, yet a lack of qualified personnel to fill those positions.
