Career and Technical Education Department

The mission of the CTE Department is to invite our students to discover how the gifts of intelligence and creativity can be used to make the world a better place for all people in an ever-changing world. Career and Technical Education is changing the way we approach some of the greatest challenges faced by today’s societies. Our ability to respond to the needs of our times rests in the development of 21st century skills in our students. Courses offered in this department provide students the opportunity to develop such skills as critical thinking and problem solving, creative thinking and innovation, collaboration, and complex communication, through active, hands-on, student-centered, content-rich learning experiences. All courses focus on mentoring and engaging responsible citizens who use their learned skills ethically, effectively and appropriately, while at the same time building relationships with others and with their community.
