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).

Community Night at Herndon Career Center
Put our Community Open House for Herndon Career Center on your calendar. We will be opening the doors the evening of Thursday, November 8 to the community! Come and see what it is that we do at Herndon, learn about certifications gained and meet the instructors. This is a great opportunity to learn about our programs and the benefits that career and technical education has on our community!
First Day of School: Wednesday, August 15
We are excited to welcome HCC students back on Wednesday, August 15, 2018. Cosmetology students have already returned and are hard at work! Please remember that Herndon Career Center does not follow the early release schedule for Raytown School District. AM session is from 7:40-10:10 and PM session is from 11:40 - 2:10.
As part of the district's efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology and maintain fiscal responsibility, the district has transitioned from paper to electronic flier (eflier delivery). To publicize content that supports the basic educational mission of the district and/or benefits the population of the district in a positive manner, the Raytown C-2 School District uses Peachjar, a free online service for schools, to post approved efliers so that they are accessible to parents, staff and students as wanted/needed. To learn more about Peachjar, please click here.
Have a Great Summer Break!
The 2017-2018 school year was a great year! We are so thankful for all the students that chose to explore a new career path and so proud of all the certifications gains!
We hope you have a wonderful break and good luck to all of our graduates who are moving into industry or post-secondary education! If you are interested in joining a HCC program next year, you can still apply! We hope to see you next year!
