The Southeast Area Technical High School (SEA-TECH) is located on Sidbury Road in Castle Hayne, North Carolina and centrally serves both New Hanover and Pender county students. The school opened its doors on August 14, 2017 to a cohort of 44 diverse freshmen. There are currently 152 students enrolled in SEA-Tech - 46 Juniors, 38 Sophomores and 68 Freshmen.
Students will be able to enter at multiple entry points (transfer into the school from other high schools) beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.
It’s expected that many students will find SEA-TECH and the technical programs an attractive option for their high school experience because of the unique blended curriculum, project based learning, flexible scheduling and one to one computer access. Along with rigorous academic requirements, the opportunity to receive stackable credentials and industry certifications through real-world, work-based training, job shadows, internships and apprenticeships is not only an expectation, but a requirement of our students.
Students at SEA-TECH will plan and be prepared for post-secondary opportunities because of their relevant, hands-on, real world educational experiences and individual career planning. When a student graduates from SEA-TECH, their plan will guide them directly into the workforce or allow them to continue with additional education and skills training.
