Leland Career and Technical Education Center was created in 1974 under the former name of Leland Vocational Technical Center.

Its technical programs include Business Fundamentals/Marketing and Management, Construction Technology and Carpentry, Metal Fabrication I and II, Automotive Service Technician I and II, AEST (Agriculture, Environment, Science and Technology), and Early Childhood Education I and II.
