Lively Technical Center is a public institution for both adults as well as high school students that offers advanced technical and vocational training aimed at meeting the changing demands of today’s domestic workforce. The school traces its roots all the way back to 1937 when it opened with merely two teachers as a vocational school, whereas now its enrollment levels reach well into the thousands. The school is located in Tallahassee, Florida and is principally intended to serve the local counties of Gadsden, Wakulla and Leon though it draws students from all across northern Florida and in some cases from farther afield.
It is a school with three separate campuses, one main campus and two smaller facilities at the Tallahassee Regional Airport and the Leon Detention Center. In the school’s own words, its mission is to help educate “today’s students for tomorrow’s workforce.”
