Most careers in the 21st century will require students to engage in some type of postsecondary education. CTE prepares both youth and adults for a wide range of careers in this new century. These careers will require varying levels of education.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, 97% of all high school students take at least one CTE course, and one in four students take three or more courses in a single program area. One-third of college students are involved in CTE, and as many as 40 million adults engage in short-term postsecondary occupational training.
Too many students leave school without the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in today’s workplace. Over the past decade, CTE has evolved with the economy to focus on careers in high demand and high growth industries. Today’s CTE programs are leading the effort to ensure all students are ready for 21st century employment. View CTE Department Classes.
