Minuteman Regional Vocational Technical School District
The Minuteman Regional Vocational Technical School District has nine member towns effective July 1, 2020: Acton, Arlington, Bolton, Concord, Dover, Lancaster, Lexington, Needham, and Stow.
The District oversees one high school and one adult workforce development learning program:
- Minuteman Regional Vocational Technical High School, which is also known as Minuteman High School -- a public school for grades 9-12.
- Minuteman Technical Institute (MTI), which provides career technical education for adults. MTI operates in the Minuteman High School building in the evenings.
Minuteman High School follows its Admissions Policy and Regional Agreement when enrolling students. Student applicants living in the member towns have first priority for admission. The District also has a long tradition of accepting students from non-member cities and towns. For more information, visit our Admissions page.
The school is governed by a District School Committee, which includes members from each of the District’s member towns. That Committee adopts an annual budget, sets policy for the District, and hires a Superintendent who oversees day-to-day operations.
