"CTE programs are helping to connect students with the high-demand science, technology, engineering and math fields — where so many good jobs are waiting."

Arne Duncan – Former U.S. Secretary of Education

Why is this program important?

Students learn skills that will help them excel and flourish in a modern global economy. Career & Technical Education (CTE) makes education come alive by making real world connection for today’s students. CTE offers high quality courses that teach academic and technical skills in preparation for competitive global economies. Instruction incorporates cutting edge equipment, technology and materials to support our students.
