Career & Technical Education
Is Career and Technical Education right for you?
Career & Technical Education is no longer just about teaching students a specific set of skills so they can get an entry-level job after high school. It is about helping students build the academic knowledge and technical skills needed to pursue postsecondary training or college after high school and be fully prepared to enter a career field!
Not only do career and technical education programs help you learn new skills you'll use later, you can experience the day-to-day work and workplaces for yourself AND meet people who may help you get a job after you graduate.
