Academy Pipeline

Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides students with real world context, hands-on experience and 21st century skills that can be explored beginning in middle school through high school and beyond. CTE Transitions provides a bridge that connects learning to careers. Transitions help students acquire the technical skills, knowledge and attitudes needed in preparation for high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations in current and emerging professions. Academy Pathways are a perfect blend of vocational education and rigorous academics.
