What is Career Technical Education, or “CTE” as it’s commonly referred to?

CTE is a program of study that involves a multi-year sequence of courses that integrates core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with a pathway to postsecondary education and careers.

For much more information about CTE, visit the California Department of Education’s CTE web page.

For more information about enrolling in CTE courses, enrolling in courses that meet college admission requirements, or both, make an appointment to speak with your high school guidance counselor.
