CTE is a series of classes designed to prepare students for specific career pathways and general skills for employment or college.

Students need training in professional skills and practice in professional behaviors to be independent and successful after high school. Students are also required to graduate with one year of occupational credit from CTE classes.

 

  • All students are encouraged to take CTE courses to gain skills and experience for employment, college, armed forces, or other future plans.

  • CTE instructors come from a variety of professional backgrounds and bring industry experience to the classroom.
