Mission Statement:
The mission of Career Prep High School is to provide students with the opportunities necessary to earn a high school diploma. This will be accomplished by creating a positive learning environment, maintaining high expectations and challenging students to make choices that will result in life-long learning, career development, cultural awareness and community involvement.

The complex is located on West Highway 64 just past Eva B. Stokely Elementary School and the Phil Thomas Performing Arts Center.
Turn at the light by the City Market shopping complex heading North/West and proceed past Dine College West, Shiprock High, The Phil, EBS, and turn at the CPHS digital sign.
The entrance to Career Prep is near the flag poles.

Since it opened in 1994 as the alternative school for Central Consolidated School District, Career Prep High School has been serving students who have needed a different approach to education.  With its smaller learning community, focus on relationships with students, and a career focus, CPHS students find an opportunity to excel. Student interests guide their course selection towards a career program of study. Faculty advisors assist them in pursuing their career goals and overcoming barriers to success in school.
