Preparing students for success
A high-quality curriculum is at the core of every great class. The driving force behind Career and Technical Education is to provide students with the skills to obtain high-wage, high-demand and high-skill careers. It’s important to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy.

The curricula provide content for numerous career fields. A major goal is to increase students’ interests and abilities. Adding relevance to students’ high school experiences motivates them to further explore future career and educational options.
