Career Center is an amazing community of educators and students right in the heart of Winston-Salem. It serves as an extension of the regular high school programs and is available to all students in WSFCS. Students maintain their affiliation with their home high schools while they complete their choice of Career Center courses. Students may choose to spend the entire day at Career Center, or enroll in select classes for just a portion of their day.

The environment is like no other and offers a perfect stepping stone to a future of university, community college, or immediate employment after graduation. The academic environment is challenging and teachers are personable, knowledgeable, and dedicated.

At Career Center, students are offered unique learning opportunities and may choose Advanced Placement, Career Technical, regular curriculum, or specialty courses.
