Kern High School District

Career Technical Education Center


Career Technical Education Center houses seventeen career education pathways and the district’s distance-learning programs, in a facility that looks and feels more like industry than a high school. This facility is intended to inspire students to think beyond high school.  The large lobby, classrooms, and labs were designed to provide a corporate-like feel to the facility. Conference rooms, huddle spaces, and casual furniture offer a variety of flexible gathering options for student collaboration. Interior windows, collaboration spaces and inspirational quotes are designed to inspire and motivate.
