What is CTE?
Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students with the academic, technical, and real-world knowledge, skills and experience they need to be prepared for a variety of career options. CTE gives students training and skills in many different types of careers in high-growth industries such as science and technology, health care, and business management. CTE programs are personalized, hands-on and let students explore different career fields.
CTE Helps Students Prepare for the Real World
CTE programs give purpose to learning by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge.
CTE Students Get More from the School Experience
CTE students have a significantly greater high school graduation rate than the national average.
CTE Allows Students to Explore More Possibilities
CTE exposes students to careers across the 16 career clusters, including careers students may not be familiar with or may not have ever considered, as well as the skills required for different careers.
CTE Gives Students an Extra Advantage
CTE gives students a head start on both college and careers through specialized classes, mentoring and work experiences in fields where jobs are in demand - like health care, engineering and information technology.
