Career and Technical Education (CTE)
Career and Technical Education (CTE) is a planned program of courses that focus on career awareness and exploration using applied hands-on learning techniques. To be career and college ready, CTE courses integrate 21st-century skills, technical skills, basic life skills, and the core academics of math, science, reading, and writing. These are essential to society in addressing the challenges posed not only by our changing economy but also by an ever-changing world. CTE courses and programs provide the motivation to achieve high academic and industry standards as well as the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully transition towards building a life beyond high school.
Splendora High School provides quality instruction to successfully prepare every student for the challenges of post-secondary education, a globally competitive workplace, and active citizenship through the following Programs of Study.
Data indicates that students in CTE programs are more engaged, graduate at higher rates, earn industry-recognized credentials leading to sustainable employment, and help support local economies and workforce development pipelines. If you are looking for a course that teaches the academic and technical skills needed to succeed in your future career, join CTE.
