Maryland’s Career and Technical Education programs prepare Maryland students for a wide range of opportunities. Upon graduation, students may continue their education or move immediately into a career. Maryland’s innovative programs have captured the attention of a growing number of students. Programs require varying levels of education—from high school to apprenticeships or two- and four-year college degrees. Students can earn early college credit and industry-recognized credentials. By completing a program of study while still in high school, students unlock a world of opportunities.
