Career and Technical Education
Career and Technical Education remains at the heart of our school community, with new programs for students being added each year. Examples include sports medicine, pre-engineering, and television broadcasting. Work based learning has re-invigorated community partnerships as students work part time or job shadow while also receiving high school credit and earning CTE completer status in their program of study. Other updates in CTE include computer science expansions with STEM and coding opportunities available beginning in middle school through junior high. Freshmen can take Computer Science I & II, while juniors and seniors are now able to take advanced courses such as the new Advanced Information Security Systems and Cybersecurity. As students progress through our secondary school pathways, they have model opportunities for college and career preparedness as well as to develop talents and interests.
Today’s cutting-edge, rigorous and relevant career and technical education prepares youth and adults for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers.
