To provide easier access to these services to the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation along with the other eight districts the facility was constructed outside the city of Evansville. Prior to 2004 students interested in these courses had to go to North High School on Diamond Avenue which was constantly plagued with road construction and traffic tie-ups in addition to cramped and non-airconditioned spaces.[4] In terms of enrollment, the EVSC has one of the largest CTE programs in the State of Indiana.[5] Other than the EVSC the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center draws Students from the following School Districts in Southwestern Indiana.

Gibson County

Posey County

Spencer County

Warrick County

The new facility is located on Lynch Road very near U.S. 41.
