Career & Technical Education


What is CTE?  Career & Technical Education (CTE) is a set of educational programs designed to prepare students for careers in various industries.  Students will receive hands-on training, technical skills development, and real-world experiences, making students more competitive in the job market.  CTE can also lead to college opportunities for those who wish to pursue further education.  

There is a strong emphasis on the alignment of Career Technical Education (CTE) programs to prepare students for high skill, high wage, and in demand occupations.
