Shelby County Schools



The mission of Southwest  Career & Technology Center is to create a safe teaching and learning environment where all students will master and demonstrate skills for "continuous, life- long learning."



The Southwest Career & Technology Center will be the provider of a safe learning environment that will  enable students to  develop to the fullest of their abilities in higher-order reasoning and problem-solving  skills.  It will  provide high tech, skilled individuals  for the business community and the changing job market. It will be a developer of future business owners as well as individuals who recognize  the  need to  continue  their education through post-secondary instructions. It will further develop its collaborative working relationship with business and industry.



We believe in creating alternative learning opportunities for the high school student while imparting high expectations of their academic and behavioral performance. We  believe that  communicating expectations to students in a clear and consistent manner will yield the desired results.



Our school character is rooted in good work ethics. We aspire to produce students who have benefited from a culture that assimilates the productive career setting.



We Value:

  • Timeliness

  • Good Attendance

  • Respect for all stakeholders on the premises

  • Cheerful and productive workers
