Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to the Arlington Career Center, a unique place of learning where we celebrate our inclusive and dynamic community through our mission to Instill a Passion for Learning by Doing and our core values of Mindfulness, Integrity, Respect, and Resiliency.
Our vision is to be a united community of self-directed learners empowered through authentic academic, industry and life experiences to actualize our personal aspirations. As the only Career and Technical Education (CTE) center for the district, we offer 24 unique CTE programs in our industry standard labs. Many of our programs and academic courses are dual enrolled which allow students to get a jumpstart to earning college credits. Our programs offer national and state approved industry credentialing tests which certify and license students. Our program specific internship opportunities provide students with invaluable real life work experiences.
With a rapidly changing workforce landscape, the programs at the Career Center are designed to equip our students with the most current skills and knowledge required to be ready for college and the world of work. Through our programs, students are empowered to make informed decisions about their future careers based on real work experience. The Student Handbook is designed to provide students and families with even more helpful information. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or our outstanding staff regarding questions you may have. I am looking forward to an amazing school year and getting to know our new students and families.
