Principal’s Welcome

Message from Dr. Burns

Welcome to Randolph High School, a unique career and technical educational institution located in Northwest Philadelphia. The mission of Randolph Career and Technical High School is to prepare our diverse student body for post-secondary and work-based experiences by offering challenging academic and career programs in a safe, supportive learning environment. The foundation of this learning environment rests on rigorous academics and Randolph’s unrivaled career pathways. These pathways include Automotive Mechanics, Automotive Collision Repair Technology, Culinary Arts, Construction Technology, Welding Technology, Fire Science and Emergency Medical Services, Advanced Electronics and Automated Systems, and Health-Related Technology.  In addition to preparing students for immediate, productive post-secondary school employment upon graduation, all programs offer students the opportunity to earn industry certifications, obtain industry apprenticeships, and form relationships with Randolph’s community partners. To complement all academic and technical programs, the staff, faculty, and administration at Randolph are committed to examining and implementing innovations in education, athletics, and extra-curricular activities  to provide multiple pathways to student growth and achievement. Finally, at Randolph, we believe that the voices of all stakeholders—students, parents, guardians, staff, faculty, administration, and community members— can and must be heard, for  “coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; [but] working together is success.”
