Career & Technical Education
Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses offer students the opportunity to explore and prepare for post-secondary programs through community/technical or four-year colleges. A sequence of courses can provide students with entry-level employment skills for internships, apprenticeships and preparation for industry certification.
