The objective of the Northeast Arkansas Career & Tech Center is to broaden and enrich the secondary school curriculum of high schools in the Jonesboro area by including technical, career, and industrial education programs that cannot be provided in the local school district. Their goal is to instill in every student the skills necessary to compete for high demand, high wage earning positions as they begin their careers in a global marketplace.
The three campuses of ASUN – Jonesboro, Marked Tree and Newport – offer technical certificates, and Associate Degrees. ASUN is a great place to start to obtain a General Equivalency Diploma, an Associate Degree, for professional or personal development, or to transfer to another institution. Courses and certificates offered include Advanced Manufacturing, Phlebotomy, Plumbing, Computer Technology, Welding, Industrial Maintenance and more.
