career and technical education (CTE) pathways
These Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways offer the opportunity for practical experience in school labs and/or community-based sites. Seniors may be offered internships in an area business as the culmination of their study in these areas. Pre-requisite coursework begins as early as 9th grade, so planning ahead is key.
Students considering further study in these areas after high school, students needing skills to work their way through college, or students desiring to enter the full-time work force after graduation should consider the CTE course offering. In order to be prepared for the high-level skills necessary, students in these programs should enroll in as many mathematics, science, and communications courses as possible. The student who successfully completes three full credits, including one application level course, from one pathway series of classes below will be recognized as a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Completer.
