  • Through our programs, we link the world of education with the world of work. Our 400+ teachers and staff provide leadership, support, and resources to prepare students with the necessary technical skills, student leadership, career focus, and academic excellence needed to succeed in both careers and post-secondary education while meeting and exceeding local workforce needs.

    Our students, teachers, and staff have gained a local, regional, national, and international reputation as one of the best career and technical education programs in the nation.


    Admission to Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs is open to students with limited English proficiency. Limited English proficiency is not a barrier to participation in CTE programs.
