Southwest Technical Education District of YumaCategory: Education & Training
STEDY is the Southwest Technical Education District of Yuma. We are a career and technical education (CTE) public high school district. We serve ALL high school students enrolled in public, private, charter and home schools; providing students with educational experiences that lead to an industry recognized certification. As a career and technology public school district, we work closely with the Arizona Department of Education.
STEDY is a career preparatory school; preparing today's students for tomorrow's workforce.
Students enrolled in a CTE program earn high school credit on their home campus, and in some cases, may earn college credit, industry certifications, and/or a state license. It is recognized that possession of an industry certificate, and/or a state license will provide students with a head start in their career choice. STEDY was formed to help students find a faster way forward in life. To connect them with their future. There is a strong collaborative effort between STEDY and the school districts in Yuma County. This collaborative effort between STEDY and the school districts provide an intricate network of student support. In addition, STEDY may provide tuition-free career and technical education at Arizona Western College in a specific area of study.
