    From the Principal

    Heyward Career and Technology Center has provided 40 years of excellent service to the students in Richland County School District One.

    We are proud to offer three programs that meet the needs of students with a variety of career interests. First, our career and technology programs prepare students for post-secondary education and/or careers in  Engineering and Industrial Technology; Health and Human Services; and Media and Information Systems. Second, the Richland One Works (ROW) program which is a school-based enterprise provides knowledge and job skills that prepare students for success in their daily lives. Finally, the Richland One Excel Academy offers a unique curriculum that helps students get on track for on-time graduation. Through these offerings, the staff at Heyward provides instruction and activities that assist students with career skills such as teamwork, leadership, professionalism, and communication. Many of the students who complete our programs receive industry certifications and continue their endeavors in college and/or the workplace. We are very proud of our rich tradition of excellence and invite you to visit our campus to share our experience!
