Career Technical Education Pathways

Why Choose Career & Technical Education?

  • Because 90% of high school graduates say they wish they had more real world experiences in high school, and CTE pathways are built around hand-on, real-world, project-based learning.

  • Because more than 85% of CTE students are planning to continue their education after high school, and being in a CTE pathway helps students focus their post-secondary plans which means they are more likely to earn a degree.

  • More than 1/3 of CTE students can receive early college credit for completing a CTE pathway, which not only helps to save money, it better prepares high school students for the rigor of college coursework.

  • Because CTE pathway completers are college bound and career ready!
