Career Technical Education (CTE)

provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in their future choice of college and career. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. CTE prepares these learners for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context. In fact, the high school graduation rate for CTE concentrators is about 90% – 15 percentage points higher than the national average.
