High School CTE Programs
Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers. CTE prepares learners for real world experience by introducing them to workplace competencies, while making academic content accessible by providing it in a hands-on context. The Arizona Professional Skills are incorporated into all CTE programs and are recognized by business and industry leaders. At the high school level, CTE provides students with opportunities to explore a career pathway that will connect or lead them into postsecondary programs of study or technical institutions.
