Welcome to Herndon Career Center!
Consolidated School District No. 2 (Raytown), in cooperation with five other area school districts, supports and operates Herndon Career Center.
At Herndon Career Center, we believe that the right student, the right program and the right reasons create a successful, meaningful and engaging start to a student's future. We are aware that one path is not the correct path for each and every student. Our goal is to help students identify individual needs and to evaluate post-secondary options. Herndon Career Center offers programs from the following career clusters: Transportation & Logistics (Automotive Collision, Automotive Technology, & Diesel, Industrial & Agriculture Mechanics), Industrial Technology (Construction Technology, Welding Metal Fabrication Technology, Industrial Engineering), Creative Services (Advertising & Graphic Design, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, and Human Services (Foundations of Nursing, Law Enforcement/Police Science, Emergency Medical Technician). Herndon Career Center also supports exploratory learning within the Southland CAPS program (Animal Health Science, Education Exploration, Environmental Planning and Awareness, Technology Solutions).
The Right Student… The Right Program… The Right Reasons
Enrollment > Retention > Graduation
