The Lee County Career and Technical Education Center sits in The HIVE Business Park, located on Mississippi Highway 6, less than six miles from U.S. 45, and just under 10 miles from Interstate 22 in southwest Lee County.
Career and Technical Education, or CTE, is similar to the vocational education classes that existed years ago but is also very different. Many programs in CTE focus on high-tech opportunities for students, such as engineering and computer programming. CTE prepares students for jobs but are designed to be more academically rigorous than those of vocational education from previous generations. CTE is preparing students for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, and high-demand jobs. Statistics show that students who take CTE courses are more likely to graduate from high school and enter into the job market more prepared.
In the Lee County School District, we provide several opportunities for our students in Career and Technical Education. We strive to offer the skills and education our students need to succeed in today’s diverse and competitive job market.
