Preparing students for high skill, high wage, high demand careers.


SCTHS is an application-based high school that combines rigorous career and technical coursework with core curriculum classes on a single campus. Students receive hands-on, project-based instruction in one of our four academy career pathways. Our goal is for students to earn college credit and industry certifications in partnership with Lee College. Students are prepared to finish their associate degree and/or baccalaureate degree education or join entry-level occupations.

SCTHS History

In September, 2017, Stuart Career Tech High School opened its doors for the first group of freshman as SCC started its conversion from a career center, to a four-year comprehensive high school. Students apply to attend SCTHS and opt to participate in an early college, career readiness experience. The campus was focused on four career academies: Advanced Automotive, Agriculture Sciences, Culinary Arts, and Manufacturing and Industrial Maintenance. Our goal is that students complete high school with industry certifications and/or an associates degree in Applied Science.
