Why CTE?

Arizona Board of Regents has approved the use of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses in lieu of fine arts courses for in-state university admission requirements. This ruling opens up new opportunities for students to pursue their passions and achieve their academic goals.

CTE Delivery Model

Career and technical education is a combination of embedded academics and community involvement and is delivered in PVSchools in the following four ways (in no particular order):

  • Classroom instruction
  • Laboratory instruction
  • Career-based learning
  • Leadership development (through career and technical student organizations)

For a visual representation of our delivery model, please view the following image:

"CTE helped me find my career path and major for college. Mrs. Grega at HHS was an amazing teacher and helped me figure out what I wanted to do with my career."

List of programs is current as of January 2023. 

Lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in the Career and Technical Education programs of the schools.

College Dual Enrollment is available for select courses. See your school counselor for course eligibility.

Program courses may be used toward the Arizona Seal of Arts Proficiency.
