Mission Statement: The Mission of Cuillier Career Center is to provide rigorous training in the career and technical skills that will prepare students to join a competitive workforce as leaders, skilled workers and craftsmen ready to succeed in their chosen careers and in our community.
Cuillier Career Center is named for Jefferson Parish educator, Joseph A. Cuillier (1927 – 1989), Sr. Mr. Cuillier, a veteran of the United States Army, earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics and science and then master’s degree in Administration and Supervision from Xavier University. Joseph Cuillier taught at Lincoln High School, served as assistant principal, and principal of the school, later serving as central office supervisor. Lincoln Career Center was established in 1982 and then later renamed to Joseph A Cuillier Sr, Career Center to honor the work of this educator in our community.
