Howell Cheney Technical High School is located in Manchester Connecticut. We have over 600 students from 26 towns and enroll grades 9-12 and also offer adult education.
Our students can select a career technical education program from a catalog of 11 different technologies. Highlights of our technology curriculum are the Diesel and Welding Technology shops, the only programs of its kind on the secondary level in the state of Connecticut.
Students enrolled in the construction trades (Carpentry, Electrical and HVAC) are involved in authentic work experiences in the shop as well as actual construction sites. The automotive trades (Auto Mechanics and Diesel Technology) are actual production garages where students work on customer vehicles. Many students from the Information Systems Technology and Computer Aided Drafting and Design programs continue their education in college. The newest addition to our trade program is Media Production. Students graduating from the Manufacturing Technology and Welding programs are in high demand by area businesses.
A feature of student life at Cheney Tech is our biweekly Club Day program during which all students participate in advisor-led club activities ranging from hiking and archery to music and movie club. Our athletic teams have won several conference titles in the last five years. Our outdoor athletic complex is a state-of-the-art synthetic turf field (baseball, softball, football and soccer) with lights and grandstand seating for 650 fans.
