House Construction Class

The Appleton Area School District’s House Construction class engages community partnerships that culminate in a win-win-win for all involved. This partnership spans local businesses and contractors, nonprofits, schools, and instructors in an effort to show students hands-on, real-world experience in all aspects of the construction field.

For the past ten years AASD students under the direction of a district teacher has built a home for the Appleton Housing Authority. For the 2017-2018 school year the district has partnered with the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity to build a house during the first semester, and renovate a second house during the second semester.


The partnership with Habitat for Humanity is being generously sponsored for the 2018-19 school year by Boldt, a nationally ranked general contractor with more than 2,000 employees and 13 locations.

Students from East, North, and West high schools spend two hours each school day with a teacher, Marcus McGuire, building the house.
