Career Technical Education connects secondary and post-secondary education to college expectations and labor market demand so students are focused, and ready for the future. CTE pathways provide students with the technical, academic and employability knowledge they need for success in college and careers. Modern CTE is adaptable, aligned with industry standards, college options and is an integral part of college prep education. The success of the pathways is due in part to the strong business partnerships the course have with local industry sectors. CTE - connecting college and career!
