Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program

Innovative Programming in Partnership With the Laborers District Council

Contact Us

At Wyncote Academy, we understand that not every student is college-bound. That’s why we offer alternative schooling options for students seeking a learning experience that strays from the traditional. Our collaboration with the Laborers District Council (LDC) of the Metropolitan Area of Philadelphia and Vicinity in the Fall 2023 Semester will provide a trades-based program, allowing students to explore careers in the building and construction trades. This three-year curricular track is open to students, regardless of residency, at no cost to their families.

We are grateful to our Board Member, Ryan Boyer, who is also the LDC Business Manager, for leading this partnership and showcasing Wyncote Academy's commitment to community involvement.
