S.T.E.D.Y. is the Southwest Technical Education District of Yuma. We are a public high school district. We serve students who are enrolled in public, private, and charter schools; students who are home-schooled, as well as students who are in the process of earning a GED and who are under 22 years of age.
We provide tuition-free career and technical education at Arizona Western College, or at one of our satellite locations, to all sophomore, junior and senior level high school students in Yuma County that are interested in learning more about accounting, agriculture, automotive and construction technologies, culinary arts, cyber-criminology, digital photography, drafting, entertainment marketing, film and TV, graphic design, nursing, software development, sports medicine and more. Students who enroll in S.T.E.D.Y. programs earn high school credit on their home campus, and in some cases, may earn college credit, industry certifications, and/or a state license at Arizona Western College. 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. S.T.E.D.Y. was formed to help students find a faster way forward in life.
