Mission Statement

Our mission is to prepare our students for a lifetime of learning and to instill a passion for cabinetmaking and the art of woodworking.

Course Description

Students learn workshop and tool safety and employability skills as they practice reading plans; estimating and selecting materials; cutting and shaping stock; assembling, fastening, and installing components; and finishing surfaces. The technical, problem-solving, leadership, and creative skills learned in Cabinetmaking can be applied in industries well beyond construction trades and professions and can prepare the student for lifelong learning and success.


Admission is by application through the PWCS Specialty Program Application Process. Students must apply between November 1st and February 1st to be considered for admission in our Auto Technology program at Hylton High School. Students will receive a decision by mid-February and must officially accept their seat in the program by mid-March to join this program.
Only students who are joining PWCS from outside the division can be considered for admission to our Auto Technology program outside of the designated timeline above. Please email our school's Specialty Program Coordinator, Christine Terenchin at [email protected], if you would like to join one of Hylton's incredible Specialty Programs and are new to PWCS.
