Career, technical, & Agricultural Education

Our career and technical education programs all share the common goal of preparing students for college and career success. We approach this work through critical partnerships with local business and college partners. Student organizations are also a driving force behind our programs. Through conferences and competitive events, students have the opportunity to develop and showcase their leadership skills, employability skills, and technical knowledge. At the culmination of each program, we highly encourage students to engage in internships, job shadowing, and work-based learning experiences to apply what they have learned in an authentic workplace.
