WHAT IS CTE?

Career and Technical Education at Clearfield High provides our students with knowledge and skills in many different content areas including, but not limited to:

•    Business & Marketing
•    Family and Consumer Science
•    Health Sciences
•    Information Technology
•    Skilled and Technical 

Courses combine the academic knowledge and technical skills that are vital for entry into the careers of the 21st century. Many CTE courses also offer Concurrent Enrollment college credit. Career Pathways help students to seamlessly transition from high school to college to careers and life.  Acquired CTE skills are verified through CTE State Skill Certificate tests or industry tests in each course. 

CTE student leadership organizations (CTSOs) combine classroom instruction with leadership training and a practical application of skills. Each organization provides training and competition specific to a CTE program area. Students enrolled in Career & Technical Education courses are encouraged to participate in the student organization that relates to their area of career interest. Each year students participate in region and state competitions. State winners are eligible to attend their national competitions. Student organizations are DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, and HOSA.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CTE?

CTE students have a higher graduation rate than non-CTE students. The CTE Skill Certificates students earn in their courses give them an edge on their resumes and applications. Check Out These Facts!
