Career and Technical Education

 

CTE is a combination of academic knowledge and technical skills that will help in pursuing rewarding careers. CTE can provide you real life skills that employers are increasingly demanding as an employee entering into your career. CTE takes students even further during their high school experiences by providing opportunities and networking with members of their communities. Caldwell High would like for you to join a CTE class to help you to further your skills and careers.
