Career and Technical Education

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) department is a consortium of the Business & Finance, Family & Consumer Sciences and Technology & Engineering departments. CTE students cultivate skills that improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities. CTE students routinely participate in problem-solving activities that reflect current workplace practices and develop career awareness, time management, and communication skills.  Each of the program areas offers opportunities to earn dual credit through articulations with local colleges.

Business Education provides students with an understanding of business technology and economic concepts.  It develops opportunities for application of basic academic, thinking and interpersonal skills. Its study contributes to a student becoming a productive worker, an economically successful entrepreneur, and a keen consumer.  Students will receive career information that helps them relate their interests, skills and abilities to opportunities in the business world. Business Education classes allow students to acquire business knowledge and skills that will help them function effectively in business and other careers.
