  • School History


        Croom Vocational High School serves communities south of Central Avenue in Prince George's County, Maryland.  In 1965, Croom was established as an alternative school with a vocational emphasis.  At Croom, technology is considered a key tool for our scholars success and is integrated throughout the instructional program. The student population is composed of 11th and 12th graders. The alternative environment at Croom Vocational High School is one of the few options in Prince George's County Public Schools for our at-risk population.
         Croom Vocational High School offers college preparatory, career, and technical education programs to approximately 120 scholars, including Carpentry and Electrical (we participate in Prince George’s County’s annual Build A House program), , Advanced Technology and Business Education.
         We are committed to the belief that our scholars are the most valuable commodity of our community and are entitled to the opportunity of an education that will prepare them to proceed with a postsecondary education or transition into successful employment.  Furthermore, we see our scholars as partners with the school in planning for their future.  The staff of Croom Vocational High School believes that the role of the school is to help each individual realize his maximum potential both as a human being and as a member of society.
