Five Career-Technical programs are offered through the program including Automotive Technology, Business Office Technology, Diesel Equipment Technology, Heating and Air Condition Technology, and Precision Machining Technology.

Hight received additional funding for tuition and other fees from the MIBEST Access Grant provided by the Women's Foundation of Mississippi.
