Career and Technical Education Programs of Study

Career and Technical Education (CTE) pairs academic knowledge with technical skills to prepare students for in-demand, high-skilled, and high-waged jobs. CTE programs of study provide the opportunity for students to earn industry-recognized certificates, acquire college credit, and gain work experience.
