Welcome to Walker Career Center! The faculty and staff of the Walker Career Center are committed to providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in the global economy. At Walker Career Center, students have the opportunity to take courses in Business and Information Technology (.BIT), Engineering and Technology Education (ETE), Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS), and specialized Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. These courses are hands on, rigorous, and relevant and will prepare you for life after high school graduation.

We pride ourselves on staying up to date with all the businesses and industries we represent so that our students complete our programs with skills that will lead to success. Most of our programs offer dual college credit at little or no cost to our students. This college credit gives our students a jump start to further their education and training.

It is now time to prepare for YOUR future. I look forward to helping,
