Career and Technical Education
Ensure a dynamic workforce by fully developing every student's career and academic potential.
Prepare students for continuous learning and workforce success.
The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department of PVSchools hosts a wide range of programs that provide students the rigor and relevance needed to succeed in today's global economy. Students are presented with opportunities to develop specialized skills while in high school and apply their academic knowledge in real-world settings. Regardless of post-secondary plans, CTE provides all students with cutting-edge training and opportunities in their chosen program of study. Lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in the Career and Technical Education programs of the schools.
CTE aligns its programmatic offerings to current, emerging, and projected labor market needs. CTE is delivered through comprehensive programs of study aligned to the National Career Clusters framework. Relevant work-based learning opportunities and leadership development are incorporated into the program of study through career and technical student organizations (CTSOs).
