Welcome to Career and Technical Education

  • CTE Logo

    According to the United States Department of Education the educational goal for our students is to be a world-class education system providing high-quality job-training opportunities for the purpose of reducing skills shortages, spurring business growth, encouraging new investment and hiring, sparking innovation, and promoting continued economic growth.

    These educational goals are central to rebuilding the United States economy and securing a brighter future for the nation. Career and Technical Education (CTE) plays a critical part in accomplishing this goal. Career and Technical Education programming provides students with hands-on reality based training in order to be college and career ready for cutting edge careers. Enrolling in Career and Technical Education means joining a learning community where students focus on advanced career technical training and academic excellence for life-long success.

Twenty elective pathway courses are available at the high school buildings in the areas of family consumer science, computers, business, and industrial technology.
