About CTE. . .

  • The mission of Career and Technical Education (CTE) is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy.  CTE gives purpose to learning by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge.  These tools and experiences make school more relevant, and ensure students are ready for the real world.  Whether students plan to further their education in community colleges, technical schools, four-year colleges and universities, receive on-the-job training, or pursue careers in the military, CTE can be the first step in a pathway toward productive employment and citizenship.
