Welcome to Barbara Jordan Career Center. I am excited that you are visiting our website. Although we no longer accept magnet applications for incoming 9th graders, students from 9 partner high schools are eligible to take classes at the Career Center beginning in 11th grade. Our partner high schools are: Furr, Heights, Houston, Kashmere, North Forest, Northside, Washington, Wheatley, and Yates
. Students remain enrolled at their home campus while taking classes here for half the day. Transportation is provided. Team Jordan is empowering students with the knowledge and skills needed to bridge the workforce of yesterday to the careers of tomorrow.
We currently offer classes in the following career pathways: Auto Tech, Construction Tech, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Health Science, Marketing, and Welding. As Houston ISD’s only Career Center, our goal is to ensure all students build on the traditional high school requirements with real world applications in their chosen career strand. Our students can begin their post secondary education and/or career fields with rigorous core content and opportunities to earn college credits and/or certifications.
Our pioneer, Ms. Barbara Jordan, raised the bar for all that follow to define their destiny. It is her founded passion for knowledge, strength to challenge self, and integrity to stand for justice that characterizes the culture of the Barbara Jordan Career Center.
We moved into our new state-of-the-art facility in January 2019. Construction is continuing as we have a Child Development wing being built.
We strive for Excellence, as it is an Honor to be Team Jordan.
