Why CTE?

CTE Students achieve more.

Who would say no to higher graduation rates? Participation in Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses increases high school graduation rates to about 95 percent, or about 10 percent higher than the national average.1 And students who take high-quality CTE courses have higher achievement in core academic subjects and are most likely to take college-prep courses.
