dot What’s in it for me?

Most students learn best and remember more when they get hands-on experience working on real life problems. You can gain these hands on
technical experiences by participating in CTE programs. In addition, these programs will prepare you for further education or careers with higher
skills levels and pay rates than you might otherwise receive. Most of our programs are two years in length, worth two credits per year. In that time,
you will learn theory, apply your academic classroom skills, and get relevant practical experience that will look great on job and college applications.

Additional benefits include participation in one of our leadership organizations, such as FBLA, DECA, FFA, FEET, HOSA, FCCLA, or SkillsUS
Membership in one of our leadership organizations gives you a leg up on the competition for jobs and college acceptance. Your participation
provides the following opportunities: leadership training, competition with your peers from around the country, travel, and scholarships.

CTE center dot What about college?

That’s up to you! All of our CTE programs will prepare you for further education, either at a two-year
technical college or a four year college/ university. You may also choose to take part in Project Running
. This program allows you to earn college credit while completing CTE programs.

dot How do I learn more?

Read the program information on this website.  Speak to your parents and guidance counselors about any programs that interest you. Your guidance
counselor can arrange a visit to the CTE programs so that you have the opportunity to see it for yourself and determine if it is the right program for you.
