Wakulla High School's Career and Technical Education Programs are organized into specific programs of study. When students complete the courses that comprise a particular program, they are prepared for employment or further education in that field.
Currently, WHS offers programs in the areas of aerospace technology, automotive maintenance, cosmetology, digital design, web development, building trades, hospitality, welding, , phlebotomy, engineering technology, HVAC, and nursing assistant through our Medical Academy. These programs articulate into college or technical education programs at the post-secondary level, if the student chooses to pursue this field.
