What Are CTE Pathways? CTE Pathways Pole Family & Consumer Sciences Pathways Technology & Engineering Pathways Agriculture Pathways Business Pathways Information Technology Pathways Marketing Pathways Skilled & Technical Sciences Pathways Health Science Pathways
CTE Pathways, within eight Areas of Study, are rigorous programs of study to assure strong academic and technical preparation. Pathways create relevance of learning, connecting high school coursework to work beyond high school, and validate the relationships between students and the educators who can be their advocates and mentors as they transition to post-secondary options. Pathways ensure that students will be prepared to take advantage of the full range of post-secondary options, including on-the-job training, certification programs, and two- and four-year college degrees.

Pathways help students clearly recognize the opportunities and educational opportunities beyond high school. Helping students understand their interests, work values, talents and skills, and how these might be best applied in the labor market, will increase chances for personal fulfillment in the workplace.

What Are Articulation Agreements?
Articulation agreements document the results of negotiation between high schools and post-secondary institutions whereby high school courses are accepted for credit within a specific college major at a specific institution. Enrolling in high school courses that have been defined by articulation agreements, gives students a head start on completing a post-secondary program of study. Get more information...

Our vision is to see that every student takes advantage of the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school, understanding that through advanced academic training they will save time and money, which will enable them to quickly earn an industry license or an associate’s degree.
