Exploring Potential Innovative Careers (EPIC)

What is Career Technical Education? Whether you realize it or not, CTE has affected you your whole life. From the doctors and nurses that have treated your illnesses, the buildings built that you have lived and worked in, the police and firemen who work to protect you, the mechanics and engineers who help get you to where you need to go, the chefs of your favorite restaurant, the veterinarian who cares for your pets…this list can go on and on. CTE can be seen everywhere.

The ingenuity of today’s CTE programs is what makes a difference from standard classes. Career and Technical Education goes beyond the sharing of information and knowledge to empowering students with the wisdom and skills of when and how to apply that knowledge throughout their careers and daily lives. CTE not only provides students with an environment to discover their passion, but the guidance so that their passion is also given purpose and a pathway for further education and career development.

We live in a world touched by CTE and we owe it to the next generation to provide them with the keys to unlock their potential.
