Construction Management Pathway
Opportunity starts here
At Burrillville High School, “building from the ground up” is a term students interpret literally in the Construction Management pathway. Here, students learn about the many facets of construction projects, from start to finish. They learn what it takes to administer building projects, how to work with various colleagues on assignments that have several moving parts, and about the work – and reward – of developing their communities, whether through creating marking signs for trails, chicken coops, play yards, sheds, or small buildings for the “Tree House” project for children in south Providence.
Working with industry partners, students help build sets and structures for the annual Rhode Island Builders Show, and play a critical role in the event. Our students are learning while giving back to various organizations and residents in town through their craft.

When I first arrived here, I knew nothing about any of the tools here, and through my three years of learning, I know how to operate these machines like the back of my hand. I can fix them and I know how to use them safely.
