What is CTE?
Career and Technical Education at Mountain High provides our students with knowledge and skills in many different content areas including:
• Business & Marketing
• Family and Consumer Science
• Health Science
• Information Technology
• Skilled and Technical
Courses combine the academic knowledge and technical skills that are vital for entry into the careers of the 21st century. Career Pathways help students to seamlessly transition from high school to college to careers and life. Skills are verified through CTE State Skill Certificate tests or industry tests in each course.
CTE student leadership organizations (CTSOs) combine classroom instruction with leadership training and a practical application of skills. Each organization provides training and competition specific to a CTE program area. Students enrolled in Career & Technical Education courses are encouraged to participate in the student organization that relates to their area of career interest. Each year students participate in region and state competitions. State winners are eligible to attend their national competitions.
What are the advantages of CTE?
CTE students have a higher graduation rate than non-CTE students. The CTE Skill Certificates students earn in their courses gives them an edge on their resumes and applications. Check out these facts!
