Career and Technical Education
CTE prepares students for post-secondary training, successful careers, and enriched lives, by ensuring that all students acquire the essential knowledge, skills and dispositions in each CTE course.
Through competency-based instruction, hands-on experiences, and work-based learning opportunities, Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides students with the structured training and the necessary tools to be successful in a career after high school and/or further his or her postsecondary education, whether at a technical school, or a two- or four-year college. Each student is encouraged to explore various areas of study and to develop the competencies that are necessary to enter today’s competitive job market with confidence.
