Welcome to Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education (CTE) empowers students by fostering academic achievement, interests, skills, and authentic learning experiences for a thriving future in an evolving world.

Through four interconnected components, CTE programs provide students with opportunities to explore passions, build in-demand job skills through work-based learning, earn industry credentials, and more.

Competency-based instruction refers to the process of teaching and learning centered around the learner's ability to demonstrate mastery of the knowledge and skills gained through a course of study.

Career and technical student organizations enhance student learning through contextual instruction, leadership and personal development, applied learning, and real world application.

Industry credentials are a third-party validation of a student's knowledge and skills in a particular program area.

Work-based learning provides students with authentic learning experiences with local business and industry partners.
