• CTE logo What is CTE?

    Career and Technical Education programs (CTE) give high school students the opportunity for a head start on preparing for college and careers. In CTE programs they will learn how core school subjects like math, science and writing are used in real-life.

    The completion of 2 years or more in one career cluster qualifies a student to receive a silver cord to wear during graduation.

    Please refer to the Course Guides and Syllabi for detailed information on Career and Technical Education programs offered.

    Honoring Outstanding CTE Students

    Outstanding Career & Technical ­Education students are selected by their teachers for their leadership, school and community involvement, ­attitude and career goals. To honor them, they receive a T-Shirt – which they are encouraged to wear every Tuesday.

    Once a quarter, each program honors a Student of the Quarter whose picture will be posted on bulletin boards around the school.

    Once a semester, a Student of the Semester is selected by each program and presented to the school board.

    Student of the Year

    From the pool of all of these students in all of the programs, two seniors are selected each year to represent the CTE Department as Student of the Year which is the highest of all honors. Those students receive their award in the Senior Recognition Assembly on their last day of school and are presented to the School Board.
