Career & Technology

The Career & Technology Studies (CTS) program helps you discover your interests and abilities in practical and purposeful ways. The entire CTS program centers around five industry clusters and 28 occupational areas organized into one-credit courses. You may elect to pursue CTS courses at introductory, intermediate or advanced levels through the following pathways:

  • The Exploratory pathway allows you to take a wide range of CTS courses.
  • The Specialized skill pathway provides you with the knowledge, skills and attributes that will prepare you for specific community or job-site skills.
  • The Credentialed pathway provides you with post-secondary and/or business and industry credentials or articulation – for example: Child Care First Aid; Adobe Certified Expert.

We encourage you to expand your career goals and interests and connect CTS to other subjects.
