Career-Technical Education (CTE) gives high school students the unique opportunity to get a head start on preparing for college and careers.
Students will learn how core school subjects like math, science and writing are used in real-life. As a CTE student you have the unique opportunity to participate in hands-on training in your chosen pathway taught by seasoned professionals in the field while gaining real work experience through various field experiences such as job shadowing or internships to name a few.
Many programs offer you the opportunity to earn college credit or industry recognized credentials.
