Northwest Career & Technical High School allows students to earn a high-school diploma while earning a certificate or degree in a technical field. We combine a rigorous educational program with career guidance and high-quality career and technical education. We're located on the Clover Park Technical College campus in Lakewood.
While earning a high-school diploma, students can also earn a certificate of initial competencies in their chosen career path. Students who graduate from Northwest Career & Technical High School are prepared for post-secondary education and training opportunities — and, if a student enrolls in the Elective High School option, they can leave NWC&THS with a college degree or certificate.
