What is a CTE Program?
A CTE program is a series of related elective classes that align to an occupation. Some CTE program classes are taught at each of the five big home high schools. Whereas other CTE program classes are taught off campus at one of three locations i.e. Centennial Campus, Meridian Campus, and Renaissance Campus. Depending on which program students are pursuing, it determines where they go to take an off-campus CTE class.
These specialty classes and classrooms are only open to students who live in the district boundaries and who attend their zoned home high school. Students request to take these CTE program classes like any other elective class. They select them during Spring Registration. There is no special application process and they do not go to school full-time elsewhere. If students do take a CTE program class that is offered at another campus, they typically are only away from their home school for half a day, every other day. In addition, students who attend an Academy or Renaissance High School may also register for many of these CTE classes. To learn about each program, see the Program pages at left.
