CTE (Career & Technical Education)

Students are motivated to learn through the Career and Technical Education (CTE) instructional delivery system that focuses on relevant classroom and interactive laboratory instruction. Students also participate in personal and leadership development through Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) for their specific program area. In addition, business and community partners contribute through advisory committees and work-based learning opportunities for CTE students.

CTE Programs include many benefits. They give students the opportunity to:

Build career and technical skills that apply directly to the workforce
Strengthen soft skills such as communication and critical thinking
Be exposed to different types of careers within the 16 Career Clusters
Prepare to take industry-recognized certification exams or dual enrollment courses

CTE is for all students, regardless of their plans after high school.  A variety of CTE programs are offered that will help fit the needs for any Career Pathway a student may be interested in whether they plan to attend a university, community college, or technical school, or work immediately after high school.

All programs are career-focused where students are preparing for immediate employment and further education in the career field.

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) are integrated into the Career and Technical Education curriculum to engage students in leadership skill building activities. Students active in CTSOs assume positive, productive roles in their community and are better prepared for careers and continuing education. CTSOs provide education experiences at a local, state, and national level through leadership conferences, competitions, camps, chapter visits, and officer trainings.
