Career Technical Education

The Career Technical Education (CTE) prepares students to enter specific career areas including:
Business, Computer, and Health Careers. Since most businesses prefer to hire workers with experience, CTE courses are geared toward meeting those employers’ needs while providing students an opportunity to develop skills necessary for them to become competitive in today’s job market.
Courses vary in length from a few weeks to 18 months. Most classes are open to anyone with no minimum qualifications necessary. They just require that students bring along a desire to learn. A
few courses have prerequisites.
Regardless of what courses students enter, they will receive an enriching educational experience
equal to the effort they put forth as an investment in themselves.
After completing a course, students receive a certificate of completion, and depending on the
course, they could receive additional certifications recognizing different levels of achievement.

General Prerequisites for CTE Classes

  • Knowledge of basic grammar, reading, spelling, and math
  • Proficient in English (written and oral) at the beginning high school level
