Letter from the Director:
Dear Swofford Parents and Community,
It is an honor and blessing to serve as the Director at Swofford Career Center, and to witness daily the maturation process our students undergo during this crucial time of life. Our school has a rich history of student achievement, as measured by Certification/Licensing tests, Skills tests, EOC data, Completer totals, Dual Enrollment results, placement rates, Workkeys results, and Technical Skill Attainment. This success can be directly attributed to the hard work and dedication of our students, faculty and staff, supportive parents, and a caring community.
