NEA Career & Technical Center is open to high school students enrolled in participating area high schools.

Our objective is to broaden and enrich the secondary school curriculum of high schools in a designated area by including technical, career, and industrial education programs that cannot be provided in the local school district. We provide training programs for students who wish to use their acquired skills and knowledge for entry into the labor market immediately upon graduation, or to enhance the education of those students choosing to pursue a post-secondary education. The Northeast Arkansas Career and Technical Center offers 11 programs of study that are available to students from schools in the Northeast Arkansas area. Currently, we are serving 12 school districts, with a total average enrollment of 500 students. NEACTC offers concurrent credit enrollment with Arkansas State University - Newport in the following programs: Auto Collision, Auto Service, Culinary Arts, Criminal Justice, Computer Engineering, Horticulture, Medical Procedures, Advanced Manufacturing, and HVACR.
