Want to be a Career & Technical Education Student?

  1. Are you seriously thinking about trying to find a job as soon as you leave high school?

  2. Do you prefer learning through activities and acquiring general skills that will help you no matter what occupation you work in?

  3. Would you be able to learn reading and math skills more easily if you could see how people use those skills in their work?

  4. Are you interested in project-based learning rather than book-based learning?

  5. Is it important that you get some kind of work experience so that you know how to apply what you are learning in school?

  6. Are you interested in participating in a student organization that develops leadership skills?

  7. Do you need skills that will help you find a part-time job while you continue your education after finishing high school?

If you answered "yes" to most of these questions, ask your guidance counselor for more information about the Career & Technical Education programs at your school or in your community.
