CTE (Career & Technical Education)

  • Purpose of CTE

    Career and Technical Education programs allow students to explore a range of options for their future - inside and outside of the classroom. Through CTE, students can start their path toward a career that they are passionate about, while earning valuable experience, college credits and more. CTE is a unique opportunity for hands on learning - putting students at the center of the action and providing the skills and confidence needed to pursue career options, discover their passions and get on a path to success.
