Career & Technical Magnet Programs
Career and Technical Education (CTE) Magnet Programs, previously known as Professional-Technical Education Programs, are career-training classes leading to industry certifications, college credits, and/or industry extern or internships. These programs, a series of related training classes, help students learn technical and professional skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for success in today's workforce including the transition to a 2-4 year college program, apprenticeship training, short-term training, or on-the-job training. Given today's workforce demands, it is important for students and parents to understand going to college does not necessarily translate into securing a job which pays a meaningful income.
To understand today's labor market and how to position oneself in a training program that will align to a living wage job, watch: "Success In The New Economy" and read "Why We Desperately Need To Bring Back Vocational Training In Schools."Watch the video below to learn about each of the programs available for students who attend a zoned-home high school or an Academy. These classes are elective offerings. No special application is required.
