Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy Springfield, MA

Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy serves high schools students in Springfield who are interested in an academic and vocational education. Putnam works with 1,400 students in grades nine through twelve.

The Putnam GEAR UP program serves 510 of these students, helping them pursue their dreams after high school. GEAR UP students from Putnam have gone on to continue their education at both two and four year colleges, private and public, and many have directly joined the work force.

Putnam GEAR UP was the first GEAR UP MA school to offer instant acceptances during the Massachusetts College Application Celebration (MCAC) back in 2015. Since the first MCAC event Putnam has continued to expand this event and now not only offers instant accept but also offers on the spot scholarships from schools.
