Career & Technical Education (CTE)
This isn’t your grandfather’s shop class.
In addition to traditional woodshop, metals and automotive classes, CTE has expanded to subjects from marketing to medicine and more, preparing graduating seniors for potentially hundreds of careers. CTE gives students the skills to enter the workforce or take their education further with college — all while improving graduation rates.

From Engaged Student Body to a Vital Workforce
Career and technical education provides students with the academic and technical skills, knowledge, and training to succeed in future careers and be valuable workers in Oregon’s workforce. CTE courses introduce students to workplace competencies and make learning available in a hands-on environment. High school graduation rates for students who take CTE courses are consistently several points higher than Oregon’s average!
So Many Choices

Ultimately students get training for living-wage, high-demand jobs, helping them enter the workforce directly after high school or after additional coursework, should they choose to pursue it.
