Career and Technical Education Department

  • Welcome:

    Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses bring learning to life. Students will have opportunities for hands-on, project-based connections between their classes and reality. It’s where students have that “A-ha” moment. “Oh, that’s where I’ll use that.” Whether it be in a Food and Nutrition class learning about crystallization, applying code to solve a math equation or just learning about torque when changing a tire, CTE brings learning to life. Through CTE courses students develop skills in communication, organization, leadership, and problem solving, while gaining experience in a variety of career pathways. Career and Technical Education (CTE) offers students the opportunity to develop critical skills through a combination of classes and authentic learning experiences, which allow them to apply academics to real-world problems. The CTE Department offers courses in four areas of study: Business & STEM Education, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Technology Education.
