Career & Technical

What’s your passion? Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses give students the chance to explore their passions. From marketing to sports medicine, students can pursue their career interests in many ways. At the same time, students develop important academic, technical and leadership skills valued by employers and colleges.

We offer CTE classes at our middle schools and high schools. These students graduate with career goals, job skills and leadership skills. They also know exactly where they need to go next to further their career and training. There’s something for everyone — take a look!
