New Graphic Communications
Program Unveiled at SCVTHS
Over the summer, the Commercial Art and Print Shop Programs were officially combined
into a Graphic Communications Program
which promises to bring fresh and exciting
challenges to the students at Somerset County
Vocational & Technical High School.
The merging of the programs began with a
renovation and physical move of the Commercial
Art classroom which is now located next door to
the Print Shop. With the move accomplished, the
time was right to combine the Commercial Art
and Printing Programs into one Graphic
Communications Program.The curriculum has since
been updated so that all Graphic Communications
students will be given instruction focused on
the business aspects of the industry. More
specifically, students will learn how to balance
budgets, take and complete orders, manage jobs
and time, service customers, and meet deadlines.
To accomplish this goal students will become
project managers as they create production
schedules, follow through with customers, and
see entire projects from inception to completion
as they interact with the public.
An important addition to the new Graphic
Communications Program is the new production
room, located between the two instructional areas.
This production area will be used by students to
take orders for in-house projects such as brochures,
flyers, and posters, as well as teacher-approved jobs
from outside community organizations.
The students will certainly be busy this
school year as their instructors ensure that
they will be well-prepared and given a taste for
real-world working conditions.
