The Babson- Carpenter Career and Technical Education Center has a long history of providing quality trade education to Hayden School District. As things have changed over the years throughout the Yampa Valley, the Babson-Carpenter Center has held tight to the traditions of offering quality education in preparing students for a career after graduation. Currently the Babson-Carpenter Center houses two Career and Technical Education Programs, Agricultural Education and Business and Marketing.

Agricultural Education

Agricultural Education started in the Fall of 2021 with grants from the Colorado Governor’s RISE Program. Agricultural Education is founded on a three part model that includes career and industry driven instruction, individual work based learning through a Supervised Agricultural Experience and a personal leadership development through the Hayden FFA Chapter. Course work is offered in Animal Science, Plant Science, Natural Resource Management, Food Products and Processing, and Power, Structural and Technical pathway with welding, compact equipment and construction courses. Each of our pathways has their own designated laboratory spaces where students are able to interact in hands-on activities that connect learning to real world application.
