What is Career and Technical Education?

CTE is a rigorous, cutting-edge program that puts an emphasis on career education for middle and high school students. CTE helps you apply what you learn by letting you explore career options with hands-on technical training while you are still in middle and high school. It is a much cheaper way to explore your options verses changing majors when attending a university or technical institute mid-stream. Check out this short video to learn more about CTE!
