Our school was founded in 1959 to provide quality career and technical education to high school students and adults in our area. For nearly five decades, our mission of providing students with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in their chosen career remains the same.
What is career and technical education?

Our students also have the opportunity to earn recognized industry credentials while still in high school. These credentials can help students find jobs, save money and be successful within their field of study.
