‘What impressed me the most and continues to impress me is the level of overall creativity and customer service that HOA continues to provide; no question was ever overlooked or ever went unanswered.’

Donneta Spath, Former Executive Director
Northwest Career & Technical Academy

The Northwest Career & Technical Academy operates as an extension of a student’s high school education by providing authentic job-related experiences. It is a consortium of Anacortes, Burlington-Edison, Concrete, Mount Vernon, La Conner, Sedro-Woolley, Bellingham and Meridian School Districts as well as Skagit Valley College. Students can receive hands-on experiences in skills such as culinary arts, pre-nursing, dental assisting, and video game development. Each program is run like an independent business, focusing on student employability. The building consists of specialized classrooms that allow students a practical learning environment to exit the academy prepared to join the workforce right after high school, or continue on to postsecondary education.
