Welcome to the Southwest Career and Technical Academy website. We are very proud of the eleven programs we are offering to the high school students in our community. The school is divided into two smaller learning communities – the Design Academy and the Professional Service Academy. Within the smaller learning communities, students share English, math, science, social studies, electives, and program classes with fellow students who share a common career interest. In the classroom, project-based learning activities will simulate real-world experiences, preparing the students for entry into the world of work, post-secondary training, or college and university life.
Below is the bell schedule for the first day of school. The lunch schedule will be based on the student’s 5th period class. Students whose 5th period class is in the C, D, or E buildings will have 1st lunch and students whose 5th period class is in the B, F, H, or the gym will have 2nd lunch.
