Career and Technical Education

What is Career and Technical Education?

CTE affects all aspects of our lives. From the doctors and nurses that have treated our illnesses, to the engineers and craftsmen who build the buildings where we live and work; from the police and firemen who protect us, to the mechanics and city planners who help get us to where we need to go; even the chefs of our favorite restaurants and the veterinarians who care for our pets… without some form of career-based education or technical schooling these individuals would not exist. There is no end to the impact CTE has on our society.

The ingenuity of today’s CTE programs sets it apart from standard educational classes. CTE empowers students with hands-on, practical wisdom and skills needed to apply knowledge throughout their careers. CTE not only provides students with the environment to discover their passion, but guidance for that passion, giving it purpose and a pathway for further development.

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

“CTE helps students define success and happiness while choosing a career.”
