Our program provides students the opportunity to explore their future career pathways while building 21st century soft skills to apply to their college and career goals. In grades K-8, students spend time exploring career possibilities through varied school site events and targeted instruction in the classroom. In grades 9-12, students build authentic skills through our career pathways and electives, which provide in-depth experiences in different fields that may lead to possible college and/or career opportunities.

What are CTE Pathways?

CTE pathways are programs that offer students transferable career readiness skills. This means that even if a student chooses a different career, they will have gained valuable skills that ensure they are career ready for a different industry sector. A pathway consists of two or more classes in a sequence at the high school level. We are working towards expanding that to include the younger grades. CTE pathways also support students in building leadership skills through participating in mentorships, internships and other work-based learning opportunities.
