Admissions Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • What are you looking for in an application to Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School?

    We look carefully at each student’s grades, attendance, and discipline from the previous two years. For a student applying to 9th grade, we review your entire 7th grade record, as well as your record from the first semester of 8th grade. In addition, every student receives a sending school recommendation from the student’s current guidance counselor. Each student is also interviewed by our student services staff as part of the application process. If you are transferring into another grade, we will review grades, attendance and discipline reports from your last two years of school.


    Who may I contact with questions?

    Please feel free to contact the Student Services Department at 508-823-5151, ext. 115.


    How can I learn more about Bristol-Plymouth?

    • Browse our website. Look at all the Programs that the school offers, along with the Academic Offerings, Athletic and Extracurricular Activities.
    • Visit the School during Open House in October.
    • Attend a presentation at your middle school about Bristol-Plymouth and take a tour of B-P with your middle school or with your parents/guardian in January.
    • Spend an afternoon at B-P in November at B-P After Dark. Select a technical program and see what it’s like to be a ‘Craftsman’.


    How do I apply?

    Apply online here. Complete the application to Bristol-Plymouth by February for priority admissions.


    What happens after I apply?

    The Admissions Department will review your application and award you points for grades, school attendance, and discipline record during the previous year and a half (Grades 7 and 8 for incoming ninth graders).

    All students will be interviewed, either at their middle school or at Bristol-Plymouth.


    How will I be notified if I’m accepted?

    Letters notifying you of your acceptance to B-P will be mailed in early March. If you have not been accepted, you will receive a letter with further information.

    When you get your acceptance notice, please complete and send in your Data Form (registration information) right away. Your slot will only be held for a few weeks so be sure to let us know that you still want to attend.
