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.

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Congratulations to the Class of 2013! We wish you the best and we are very proud of all of you.
The school office is on summer hours through June and we are closed in the month of July. We are busy preparing for a new school year and look forward to the 2013-2014 school year. Have a great summer break!
Senior portrait appointments can now be made for the Class of 2014. All photos will be taken at Bell Photography. Each student will complete a session that will include a traditional graduation photo, and an additional personalized photo to express the graduate’s personality. The cost for this session is $10. Please contact Bell Photographers at (702) 893-2355. The deadline for the session to be completed is September 15th.
The district’s ParentLink mobile apps provide a fast and convenient way for parents and students to check grades, assignments, and attendance information; set custom alerts; have quick access to cafeteria balance information; and view messages in a simple, easy-to-use format for iOS and Android. This new application is available to our parents and students at no cost and can be downloaded directly from the iTunes App store, Google Play store, or from the links provided below.
Parents, students, and staff members can now buy SWCTA gear, memorabilia, and accessories online. The SWCTA has created an online store where one can purchase items for men, women, youth, and more. To shop, visit the Southwest CTA Store link on the right of this page.
All program and elective fees for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year are due on September 6, 2012.
Program and elective fees can be paid online. There is a small service charge for your credit or debit card transaction. To avoid these fees, you may pay program and elective fees by cash, check or money order. Parents or students may pay course fees to the school banker during normal business hours. If you would like to pay online, please visit the Course Fees Payment Center. Please refer to your course fee insert that was mailed to you in August for the breakdown of our course fees.
