What is Career & Technical Education?

Career and Technical Education (CTE) promotes and supports locally based middle and high school programs that provide 21st century, academic and technical skills for all students. Whether you plan to go to work straight out of high school or eventually earn a PhD, whether you have a clear career goal or just want to learn something practical and new, you can benefit from CTE.

All CTE Opportunities will be offered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, or disability.
Steps will be taken to assure that the lack of English Language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in CTE programs.

Why is CTE So Important?

  1. CTE in schools places an emphasis on career readiness and hands-on learning. These aspects create a more engaging school environment that is linked to higher graduation rates among students.
  2. Because CTE programs put an emphasis on career readiness, they teach important employability skills that are currently in high demand.
  3. As teachers prepare CTE students for their future careers as skilled craft professionals, they do an abundance of hands-on learning with real-life applications in traditional math and science classes.
  4. Too many students graduate without knowing what they want to do. But at its root, CTE is career-focused. This practice of getting these youth to think about their future proves to be beneficial for all students.
