Biddeford Regional Center of Technology


Our Mission

Biddeford Regional Center of Technology’s mission is to ensure that students acquire academic, career and industry-recognized technical skills that will prepare them for successful entry into the workforce and post-secondary education.

BRCOT provides career and technical education for students from Biddeford, Kennebunk Old Orchard Beach high schools and Thornton Academy.  Training an educated workforce is key to developing a successful and productive community and economy.  Through our career clusters, pathways and programs, we empower students to develop the attributes and skills necessary to become successful citizens, workers and leaders.  A majority of the graduates continue their training and education while some prefer to enter full time employment. BRCOT students have access to hands-on learning, career pathways, articulated college credit with Maine's postsecondary institutions, national industry certifications, employability skills, safety training and technical preparation
