Longstanding community asset re-imagined in a new location

The re-located Career Center expands the reach of the previous facility as a hub for Winston-Salem High school students considering their future career-oriented education. The new location on the Kennedy Campus is closer to the geographic center of Forsyth County and thus more accessible to students from all of the county’s high schools. With careful planning and creative design, we greatly increased the site’s density, which brought new synergies to the site and the surrounding community.

The main objective was to create a true learning campus where students can thrive in advanced placement and career-oriented technical and standard curriculum courses. The facility is infused with natural light, view corridors open to the surrounding environment, and colorful wayfinding elements, all of which impart a positive experience for students considering their futures.
