CTE ACADEMIES

CTE academies are high-school programs that integrate students learning in school with real-world opportunities to increase student motivation and achievement. According to The California Center for College and Career, "Pathways that link learning with student interests and career preparation lead to higher graduation rates, increased college enrollments, and higher earning potential."

CTE academies expose students to different career fields, motivate them to think about their personal college and career path and integrate the development of 21st century pre-professional skills. CTE academies feature cross-curricular projects focused on specific career industry themes and academic topics. The Academy courses stress hands-on, project-based learning to provide a more authentic, real-world educational and work-based learning experience for students.
