Berrien County CTE Programs
Career & Technical Education (CTE) offers a more relevant, engaging high school experience by combining the rigorous core academics that students need for college with the career and technical education that makes them employable, and to do it in an applied, hands-on way that includes real-life experience.
Not only does career-relevant education keep students engaged in school but studies have shown that students in such programs have higher graduation rates than students who did not take CTE courses.
We offer a variety of programs to students in Berrien County that can be grouped into the 6 Michigan Career Pathways. Programs are designed for any student who wants to graduate with industry certifications, on-the-job experiences, business & industry connections, and college credits. Offerings vary by local district and students have the opportunity to take courses not offered at their home school.
All Career & Technical Education programs, services, activities, and employment follow the local district’s policies of nondiscrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, religion, height, weight, marital status, sexual orientation (subject to the limits of applicable law), age, genetic information, or disability in its programs, services, activities or employment opportunities. In addition, arrangements can be made to accommodate the ESL (English as a Second Language) population.
