Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education or CTE is the practice of teaching specific career skills to middle, high school and college age students.

CTE is divided into 16 National Career Clusters that apply to different high demand careers. 

MCPSS Career and Technical Education gives your child the academic, technical and employability skills needed to succeed in life and in a growing global society.

In addition, Career and Technical education helps students get a glimpse into how what they’re learning applies to the needs of employers.

Regardless of whether students are headed for college or the workforce, this type of education will help them prepare for the future. In fact, college-bound students can get job experiences to help them define their career plans, identify an appropriate course of study and help pay for tuition.

Just think of the benefits your child will receive by gaining not only a solid foundation in academics, but also hands-on, technical experience and know-how.
