This school is great! I have always wanted to be a chef, and I didn't think there was anything I could do about that until I got out of high school. I found out about SECTA, and luckily I got accepted into Culinary Arts. So far, my experiences have been great here, and I like all of my classes. This school is great because you can pursue your passion earlier than you could in any other high school. Some of the classes they offer are very unique. They offer classes like crossfit as well as PE, teaching and training, and cosmetology. I have
and would recommend this school to everyone.

Southeast Career and Technical Academy is a very diverse school that encourages students to reach their full potential. I like the educational energy that always flows through the school and every student. At SECTA we are always told to plan for the future and to work hard because it will pay off. My experience so far has been very refreshing and enjoyable. If there is one thing SECTA could improve on, it’s school spirit. Participating in school spirit is crucial for the best high school experience!
SECTA is an amazing school, and their main goal is to have the students achieve their dreams! YEs, the workload in classes is a bit much, but things aren't handed to you. You work to earn it. The only thing I'd want to change about the school is the workload. See, it is like our teachers don't know that we have other classes to worry about. The workload is overwhelming and stresses a lot of students out. Making them drop out and into their home schools.
