What Are CTE Pathways Programs?

Career Technical Education (CTE) Pathways are educational programs that are focused in college and career opportunities. These programs are available in our high schools and often have "feeder" programs at the middle and elementary school levels. Students work with their school counselors to determine their areas of interest and what Pathway might best serve their talents and goals. Pathways are free and classes are incorporated into each student's curriculum and graduation requirements. 

What CTE Pathways are offered?

A host of CTE pathways are offered in connected learning programs from elementary through high school. Check out the high school links on this page to learn about the breadth of CTE Pathways at each school.

How does my child benefit by taking a Pathway course?

Freshmen being career programs beginning with Career & College Seminar either in the Summer prior to their freshmen year or during freshmen year. College credit is given for this course as students develop a 10-year plan from high school through college. By their senior year, students will experience a variety of work-based learning experiences in this focused sequence of classes. Depending on the program they earn college credit, serve in internships, and earn industry certificaton.
