Students are encouraged to explore the opportunities available through our career and technical education departments. CTE courses allow students to learn “hands on” job skills in a variety of career fields. Students who complete a course sequence in high school CTE courses can be prepared for entry level jobs and/or further training in a related field. High school courses are offered in agriculture, auto mechanics, business and information technology, carpentry and building trades, cosmetology, culinary arts, family and consumer sciences, health and medical sciences, horticulture, graphic imaging technology, JROTC, nail technology and technology education. Dual Enrollment courses may be offered in several CTE high school courses. Junior high courses are offered in agriculture, computer applications, and family and consumer sciences for high school credit. There are also junior high courses available in agriculture, computer literacy, technology, and family consumer sciences as exploratory options.
Cooperative education programs allow students the opportunity to earn high school credit for working at an approved job. Cooperative education students may be allowed to leave school early during their junior and senior years.
In addition, many of our CTE programs provide students the opportunity to participate in Industry Certification and State Licensure testing. Refer to diploma requirements for CTE credentials, if seeking a Standard Diploma.
