Welcome to the Northwest Career & Technical Academy! The Academy is an extension of your high school where innovative educational opportunities are available. Programs offered will provide you with the skills, knowledge, and professional leadership training necessary for the workplace or continuing education through an apprenticeship, community college, or university. Students will also be offered a jump-start through participation in internships, job shadows, field studies, clinical and other real world experiences as well as college articulated credits, industry certifications and licenses. Program certifications and licenses received by students represent valuable employment skills because they meet industry standards and increase potential earning power and post-secondary training/educational placement.
The Academy is made up of three campuses — The main campus is in Mount Vernon adjacent to Skagit Valley College. The Anacortes Campus is home to the Marine Technology and the Aerospace programs. The Whatcom Campus is on the Meridian High School campus.
